You can include: where he is from, what events he won gold medals for, what year he won medals and some interesting facts about him. There is a template at the bottom of this page that you can use. I have also shared it with you on J2E - if you click edit, you can type on the fact file and then save it!

Expressive Arts: Use J2E, paint, colouring pencils or junk materials you have at home to make yourself a gold medal like Mo Farrah. Get an adult to take a photo of you imagining you are standing on the winners podium after you have won the race!
