Farah denied final gold by Ethiopian Edris

Farah denied final gold by Ethiopian Edris

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.

Though Bolt arrived at the championships, Farah has already seen victory in the 10,000m, lauded by some as the greatest of his career.

Farah had won the 10,000m on the opening night - but it was not to be in the 5,000m.

The British track icon was hoping to bow out on a high but like Usain Bolt, he'll have to settle for second best in his final race.

"There's more need for us to demonstrate that we have some incredible talent, but the athletes have also got to realise that they've also got a sizeable part to play in this". The bronze medal went to American Paul Chelimo (13:33.30). Farah sat in third entering the final 400 meters, but he visibly struggled with the pace and couldn't overtake the Ethiopian victor. They had a game plan and that was that one was going to sacrifice themselves, but I gave it my all.

As a race it started fast, slowed to the proverbial crawl: Farah first hit the front with seven and a half laps to run, unusual for him, determined to dictate the pace than follow it. That's what they did tonight, and the better man won on the day.

Then came surge after counter surge, Farah riding on the back of each one.

But after the race, almost all of the attention went to Farah.

Sir Mo was aiming to retain both world titles which he had won in Beijing two years ago.

He claimed the 10,000m title once again last Friday, only to suffer his first loss in a final for 2,176 days on Saturday night in front of another huge London Stadium crowd.

That effort may well have taken more out of him that Farah himself had realised. That he finishes with silver on the track clearly wasn't the farewell he had planned.
