Mo Farah Running Away From Things is a single topic blog that features photoshopped images of British track and field athlete Mo Farah taken during the 2012 Olympic Games to appear as if he is running away in horror from something.
During the 2012 Olympic Games, Mo Farah won the gold medal in the 10,000-meter race on August 4th with a time of 27:30:42. This marked the first time an athlete from Britain won a gold medal for this event. On August 11th, Farah took home a second gold medal for the 5000-meter race, becoming one of a handful of people who have won both races at the same Olympics. As he crossed the finish line, he was photographed with his arms spread making an incredibly surprised expression with his mouth agape.
On August 12th, British graphic designer Luke Harvey created a single topic blog titled Mo Farah Running Away From Things, initially posting an image of Farah’s race-winning reaction photoshopped over a scene from the 1993 action film Jurassic Park, to make it appear as if the Olympian was running away from a Tyrannosaurus Rex.
The next day, on August 13th, 2012, the blog was shared on the Daily Dot and Mashable. Over the next two days, series of images from the blog were posted on Buzzfeed, the Huffington Post UK, the Daily Mail, Runner’s World, the FW, Uproxx, the New York Daily News and the Independent.
