Farah emotional after 'toughest' win

Farah emotional after 'toughest' win

Farah triumphed in a sprint finish ahead of Joshua Cheptegei and Paul Tanui after making his move with a lap and a half to go, although stumbled twice in the final 400m after being clipped and he admitted he may need stitches in his leg.

"It's what we should be about: a person who comes to Britain as a young man, as a refugee, and an ex-schoolteacher (Alan Watkinson) identifies something that he's brilliant at and he represents Britain as the best in the world".

The 100m preliminary rounds go down at 9pm Kenyan time.

It's the 34-year old's 6th gold medal of his World Championships career. "It's special", Farah said, after hugging his children on the track.

Farah completed "Super Saturday" for Great Britain by winning the third of three home gold medals in the Olympic Stadium in one night, kicking away down the home straight to roars from the crowd.

The British runner, also running on the track in his final major championships, showed the Jamaican how to win gold before saying goodbye.

With it looking like one of the quicker 10,000m we have seen, they hit the last mile with Farah still looking very much in contention for a testing finish.

Karoki finished seventh while Kamworor wound up 11th on that occasion.

The post Farah bids for final double golden fanfare appeared first on The Independent Uganda:. There were elbows thrown, shoves in the back, and clipped heels, and Farah almost went down with 300 metres to go en route to winning his 10th consecutive global distance title.

Tanui, struggling all the way home, grabbed the bronze medal with a seasonal best time of 26:50.60. This is where it went from normal to "I'm Mo" overnight.

"Every bump that I took, I was like 'All right, this is part of it, just gotta take it, and keep rolling with it, ' " Ahmed said.

BBC 5 live commentator Mike Costello: "It was astonishing the discipline he showed to win and he looked so in control it was nearly like his great hero Muhammad Ali to George Foreman in the Rumble of the Jungle when he said 'is that all you've got?'" I've got a few cuts and bruises but I just have to recover and get ready for the 5K.

Given that they lead the world on times -27:08.26 and 27:09.08 from Hengelo-Ethiopian duo Abadi Hadis and Jemal Yimer might be tempted to take it out fast from the start to make it a true race.

These media sessions offer fantastic opportunities for journalists to appraise themselves on the athletes' form and preparations, while also offering the national athletics federations a platform to update the world on their track and field programmes.

The 30-year-old Jamaican legend will wear purple and gold Puma spikes presented to him by his parents, Wellesley and Jennifer Bolt.

Back at the stadium where the Jamaican declared himself a "living legend" after retaining his 100m and 200m titles at the 2012 Olympics, the 30-year-old recovered from an very bad start to win his heat in 10.07 seconds.

LAURA Muir never imagined competing at major championships when she watched the 2012 Olympics - but she now has far higher expectations as the London Stadium hosts another major event. London 2017 will be a rematch of the Beijing battle.
