Britain’s most successful athlete reveals the principles that drive him and the events of his life that have contributed to his success. Trafficked to the UK as a child, Mo found an escape in his abilities as a runner, but he has not followed an easy path to greatness. Identifying the ten cornerstones of his success, Mo reflects on his achievements and shows what it takes to build the mindset of a champion.

In a sport of fine margins, Mo knows better than anyone the grit and determination required to succeed. And the resilience needed to bounce back from failure. From gold medals to world records, to multiple Olympic, World and European championships, his extraordinary career is the result of years of dedication and discipline, against the backdrop of immense personal struggle.

Packed with insights and revelations from his life and career, in Higher Expectations, Mo coaches readers through what it takes to find motivation, improve performance, and maximise potential, regardless of where you start from.
