Mo Farah takes world 5000m silver to fall short of a farewell double
12 Agosto, 2017, 23:53
Farah, who had not lost a final in 2,176 days, having also won the 10,000m and 5,000m at the 2013 and 2015 World Championships, is due to retire from track events at the end of the month, after the Diamond League final in Zurich, to focus on the marathon.
In what was his last major track appearance before retirement later this month, the 34-year-old finished with a time of 13 minutes 33.22 seconds - almost one second behind gold-winner Muktar Edris of Ethiopia.
Farah, who is unbeaten in 5,000m global finals since winning the 2011 world crown, admitted to being exhausted but said he took his lead off a Kenyan catchphrase.
Farah normally takes charge on the final lap but this time, following a tactical affair, he found himself playing catch-up over the final 400m as Edris and his fellow Ethopian Yomif Kejelcha led the way.

Mo Farah of Great Britain reacts after finishing second in the Men's 5000 Metres final.
Last Friday night, he produced another bold if not ballsy display in the 10,000m, riding each wave of surge and counter surge with utter fearlessness: he very almost fell over himself too with 300m to run - yet held his nerve and ultimately devastating kick to win in 26:49.53, the fastest time in the world this year.
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.
