Mo Farah is delaying a training trip to South Africa to compete in the Great Edinburgh Cross Country on January 13.

The European title holder has decided he will benefit from what will be a testing short-course appearance.

The 23-year-old rounded off a hugely successful 2006 by equalling Rob Denmark's UK 5 000m road race record in County Donegal on Boxing Day.

He is planning to challenge for medals at the European Indoors and World Cross Country Championships, both in March. - BBC
