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

  • Mo Farah

Paul Chelimo of the United States set the early pace with Farah slotting in behind.

"I have to focus on myself".

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 have a few more races on the track and then I will take a short break and then this chapter of my life is closed".

The four-time Olympic champion ran a valiant race in his final appearance on the track at a major championship but could not quite catch Ethiopia's Muktar Edris.

It looked at one point as if Farah may not even make the podium but he bravely challenged up the inside in the straight and managed to overhaul two of his rivals.

Seeking a fitting end to his matchless long-distance racing career before moving to marathon running, the 34-year-old Briton's bid for a fifth straight global 10,000/5,000m double was scuppered as he had to settle for the silver.

"They worked as a team, the better man won". "I feel happy that I ran with Mo Farah". A victory for Sally Pearson would find Australia a place in the medal tally.

That effort may well have taken more out of him that Farah himself had realised. He won the 5,000 and 10,000 meters double at the 2012 and 2016 Olympics, as well as the 2013 and 2015 World Championships.

Pearson delivered the flawless championship performance too, her 12.59 seconds run from the front and enough to hold off the American Dawn Harper Nelson, with Germany's Pamela Dutkiewicz beating world record holder Kendra Harrison for the bronze.

Govindan Lakshmanan ran his personal best but it was still not enough for him to qualify for the final round of the men's 5000m race in the World Athletics Championships. That he finishes with silver on the track clearly wasn't the farewell he had planned.
