Mo Farah defends his 10,000m title in London – World Athletics Championships
Britain is proud of Mo Farah. When he appeared at the start line the athlete lit up the London Stadium once again. Fans watched as he survived a brutal collective effort from his rivals. Mo stormed to his third consecutive world 10,000 metres gold.
The Champion was roared on by a capacity crowd. Their support was as loud as anything experienced here during his Olympic triumphs five summers ago. The Briton almost fell twice late in the race as an epic contest developed. This before kicking down the home straight in trademark fashion to finally pull away.
These are Farah’s final track championships, and not since his golden run of victories began seven years ago has he been tested like this.
Yet he proved himself equal to those physical and tactical challenges, his young son and three daughters joining him on the track afterwards as the celebrations rolled around the arena.
Uganda’s Joshua Cheptegei was in his wake for silver and Kenya’s Paul Tanui third, the winning time of 26 minutes 49.51 seconds just three seconds off Farah’s personal best.
