Now, at long last, Mo Farah can use the front entrance at Nike

Now that all "i"s have been dotted, "t"s crossed, and British distance star Mo Farah officially has Nike sponsorship, Oregon Project coach Alberto Salazar can relax.

"Mo is wearing our gear," Salazar said. "I don't have to sneak him in the back door at Nike anymore."

Farah still was sponsored by Adidas when he began training with Salazar and the Nike-sponsored Oregon Project in January.
