Somalia: World Athletics - Mohammed Farah in the Legend

Mohammed Farah has done it again! Already crowned on 10000m, the Briton Mo Farah realized a great double by winning the 5000m in the World Championships in Moscow.

The Briton of Somalian origin has won the final with fantastic finish.

Kenyans and Ethiopians have tried to destabilize Mo Farah taking the lead of the race. But the Somalian serene and European record holder in the 1500m and 10 000m seems untouchable and runs at his own pace, without worrying about multiple changes of pace in the race lead.

Farah had to work through but he finally won the 5,000 m in 13'26 '98 ahead of the Ethiopian Hagos Gebrhiwet and the Kenyan Kiplangat Isiah Koech.
