Article source: Athletics

Despite Kenyan runners controlling the race from the gun  Great Britain's Mo Farah once again delivered on the world's stage by winning his fourth 10000m world championships title in Beijing on Saturday (22).

 

Clocking 54.5 over the bell lap,  Mo Farah managed to beat world cross champion  Geoffrey Kipsang Kamworor  and Paul Kipngetich Tanui of Kenya.

Farah crossed the line in 27:01.13, while  Kamworor and Tanui who took silver and bronze finished after 27:01.76 and 27:02.83 respectively.

"I knew the guys were going to do that, too many years now they've left it slow so they had to do it and it did happen," says the world champion. 

"It was a matter of digging in there and hopefully it didn't take it too much out of me. It's not easy running 27 minutes in this heat." Mo Farah told BBC after the finish.

Mo Farah training partner American Galen Rupp took 5th place in 27:08.91.
