Mo Farah wins his final 10,000 meters in 26:49.51!


The 10,000 meters is the longest race in track & field. It is 25 laps on a standard 400 meter track. At the top level, it is both chess match and boxing match. In the 2017 London World Championships 10,000 meters, the Standing Room Only crowd in London Olympic Stadium were treated to, in this writer's opinion, may have been the finest 25 lapper of Mo Farah's career.

It is one thing, when Mo Farah won the gold in London. A tremendous race, yes, but, in 2017, the race was totally different. This was Mo Farah's last 10,000 meters at a World Championships, and he had a bulls eye on his front and back. The elite athletes of Uganda, Kenya and Ethiopia had one goal: take Mo Farah, the king of distance racers down to the human level.

In a race where the first half was run in 13:33.37, the second 5,000 meters was run in 13:16.14! The last 2000 meters were run in 5:09, and the last 400 meters in 56 seconds!

This session has been sold out for months, in fact only one session all ten days is not sold out!

Mo Farah cemented himself into history! Watch for our stories!

All set for tonight...!!! GoHardOrGoHome...!!! #roadtolondon #onemomile #onemorace #mofarah #mobot #🇬🇧 #teamgb
