Mo Farah runs 13:10.60, Sets Euro & British record for 5,000 meters, by Larry Eder

Running with new training partner Galen Rupp, Mo Farah set a new European and British record for 5,000 meters of 13:10.60. Mo took the lead with 100 meters to go, after having ran a very steady pace with Rupp, both together from 3k to the finish.

Mo Farah will be running the 3,000 meters at the European Champs in Paris in two weeks, with his eyes set on defending his 3,000m win in Torino in 2009!
