LONDON (AP) — Mo Farah won the 5,000 meters to complete an Olympic distance double for Britain on Saturday night.
Backed by a boistrous, capacity crowd at 80,000-seat Olympic Stadium, Farah surged ahead late and held on to win in 13 minutes, 41.66 seconds. He still had the energy to do a few playful situps on the track before he grabbed a flag for the real celebrations.
Dejen Gebremeskel of Ethiopia won silver in 13:41.98, while Thomas Longosiwa of Kenya took bronze in 13:42.36.
The Somali-born Farah won the 10,000 meters on Britain’s “Super Saturday” last weekend, the same night Jess Ennis won the heptathlon and Greg Rutherford the long jump.
