British distance runner Mo Farah is hoping to get his first Olympic medal on Saturday when he races in the men's 10,000m final.
He came to England aged 11 as a Somali refugee and was often in trouble at school - but his PE teacher spotted something in the young Farah, and helped him find focus.
Graham Satchell went to meet Alan Watkinson to hear about the young Farah.
