Sir Mo Farah claims silver in 5000 metres at world athletics championships

Sir Mo Farah claims silver in 5000 metres at world athletics championships

The eight-time Olympic champion strained a muscle in his left leg which threw him off balance.

That wasn't the only surprise.

Yohan Blake has accused London 2017 organisers of causing the injury that wrecked Usain Bolt's farewell by leaving him waiting in the cold too long. His body can no longer hold up.

Bolt, who finished third in the individual 100m behind victor Justin Gatlin and Christian Coleman, said: "I enjoy relays more than anything". However, he will have a chance to end his career on a high on Saturday night as the Jamaican relay team will take the track.

On the other hand, the Gold Medal hopefuls tem US with 100 metres Gold and Bronze medal winners Justin Gatlin and Christian Coleman were expected to win as they rain in their 2nd and 4th leg but ended up losing to the home team - Britain.

And Dr Kevin Jones said later on in the evening: "It's cramp in his left hamstring but a lot of pain is from the disappointment of losing the race". It was ridiculous man, we were there around 45 minutes waiting outside, I think they had three medal ceremonies before we went out so we were really trying our hardest to stay warm and keep upbeat. Normally I get better through the rounds.

"It's heart-wrenching", said McLeod, who is also the Olympic champion.

Scaramucci decried what he called the "Bannon-Bart" influence at the White House, labelling it "nonsense". I think at the end of the day; the president knows who the leakers are.

"Bolt is an electrifying character who has run sizzling times, mind-blowing times and throughout the years he has always kept it classy".

It was yet another wonderful upset in a championship of so many.

He finished second in Thursday's 5,000m heat in 13 minutes 30.18 seconds, behind Ethiopia's Yomif Kejelcha.

"I gave it all", Farah said. As a true friend, I didn't like it one bit.

The 30-year-old Bolt, beaten into third in the individual 100m behind Gatlin and his United States team compatriot Christian Coleman, was comforted by teammates after getting to his feet, his face etched in pain.

That is exactly what the world witnessed at the IAAF World Championships in London on Saturday. The team of Aaliyah Brown, Allyson Felix, Morolake Akinosun and Tori Bowie won gold with a time of 41.82 seconds.

"I drank like two bottles of water". Another Czech, Petr Frydrych, took bronze with a last throw of 88.32 meters. The German beat Jakub Vadlejch of the Czech Republic by 16 centimeters.
