Edris ends Farah's invincibility in final race

Edris ends Farah's invincibility in final race

Farah had already won the 10,000m last week with the 34-year-old the only GB athlete to have won an individual honour at the home championships.

The four-time Olympic champion failed to mount a third defence of the 5000m as Ethiopia's Muktar Edris claimed gold in London on Saturday. "I gave it all, I didn't have a single bit left at the end".

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

Mo Farah missed out on the 5,000m and 10,000m double at the World Athletics Championships, bringing down the curtain on his track career at major events with a silver medal.

In a thrilling finale, Farah looked to be completely outgunned by three rivals only to fight back and snatch second place behind Edris, who clocked 13 minutes, 32.79 seconds after a searing final lap. The bronze medal went to American Paul Chelimo (13:33.30). Tactically, I was trying to cover every move.

His message echoed the criticisms in recent days from many conservative news media figures and activists, who blame Mr. Gingrich said a bigger loss is ahead for Republicans if they don't learn a lesson from failing on healthcare.

Farah and his team-mate Andrew Butchart had tried to break up the field with 600 metres to go in a race that had been run at generally a very slow pace.

"They had the game plan: one of them was going to sacrifice themselves".

As the group went through the 3,000m mark Australian Patrick Tiernan was the one who chose to change the pace and he opened up a little gap between Chelimo, Farah and the rest of the pack.

But when he starts his career as a marathon runner, Farah will be able to reflect on having created an incredible legacy with his four Olympic and six World Championship gold medals.
