    Think how terrible it must be to be separated from your borther/sister! I bet they could be twin Olympic champions if this hadn't happened.

    this is so surprising! He should have been in the olympics too!! Yeah he could have been successful too. It's so sad they were seperated but it's good they're together again

    This is so sad, but I think that maybe they could train together and then both enter the Rio Olympics together :D

    I never knew that! If Hassan had been given the chance to go to England, he could have been an Olympic athlete too!

    It is so terrible that they were separated from each other!

    I'd be jealous if my twin brother was this famous world champion, but his twin is proud of him!! They could be amazing if they bother go in the track events!

  • Holly E (Age 14) wrote on Sunday, 26 August 2012 @ 16:27

    They look exactly the same!!!!! I feel really sorry for Hassan as he must feel really annoyed that Mo is doing so well and he is less fortunate.

  • Thandi C (Age 12) wrote on Sunday, 26 August 2012 @ 17:10

    That's a shock! They must have felt horrible being separated. Its good they're together again =D, if they hadn't been separated they would defiantly be Olympic twins :D

    I can't believe I'm admitting this but I would be really upset if I was sepperated from my brother for this many years :(

    It must be so sad to be separated from your brother or sister for this long.

  • Orla M (Age 12) wrote on Wednesday, 29 August 2012 @ 17:52

    Wow they are extremely alike; horrible to be seperated; his brother must feel a TEENSY bit jelous (i would!) as Mo has had all the wonderful opportunities and he has been left in Somalia but fairplay for building up the buisness and I do know Mo does have to work very very very hard! They are equally AMAZING !! xx
