London 2017: Farah fails to win 5000m gold, settles for silver

12 Août 2017

It was a glorious win for 23-year-old Ethiopian Edris, the fastest man in the world this year, who had lost all his five previous meetings with Farah.

The British record holder equalled her season's best with a 1.95 metre effort but couldn't get over 1.97m, which would have been just a centimetre under her personal best from last year's Rio Olympics.

Farah, a two-time double world champion and two time double Olympic champion, finished in 13:33.22 just failing to repeat his memorable Olympic double on the same track in 2012.

Farah narrowly missed out on a remarkable fifth consecutive major championships distance double in London but don't say he settled for silver.

Paul Chelimo of the United States took bronze. Perhaps this was a step too far into greatness, even for an athlete like Farah.

"Tactically, they worked as a team", said Farah. It doesn't quite sink in until you compete here and cross the line - I had a couple of minutes to myself - that this is it.

"I don't think there was any more I could have done".

The company reported $0.37 earnings per share for the quarter, beating the Zacks' consensus estimate of $0.33 by $0.04. ET AL acquired a new stake in Liberty Media Corporation during the second quarter valued at approximately $9,422,000.

He fell several metres behind them going down the back straight.

"There's more need for us to demonstrate that we have some incredible talent, but the athletes have also got to realise that they've also got a sizeable part to play in this".

This race was not as bruising and Farah looked in control until the final 100metres.

It is also about Kenya's bid to end 12-year gold drought in men's 5,000m, which Benjamin Kipkoech Limo last won in Helsinki, Finland, in 2005.

For Farah, there will be no comeback on the track, as he now moves up the marathon looking to extend his gold medal haul.

Coe said: "I was chatting to Usain before the medal ceremony and, slightly tongue-in-cheek, he looked at me and said, 'So what do you want me to do now, boss?'" "I feel happy that I ran with Mo Farah".
