Unstoppable Mofarah retains championship yet again.10,000m Men IAAF World Championship London 2017

10000Men

The Kenyans and Ugandans threw everything at Mo Farah over the first nine kilometres of the 10,000m final but the reigning champion still found himself in the position where he is at his most dangerous and virtually unbeatable: at the front with 800m remaining.

While the Kenyans made it a hard race from the gun two years ago in Beijing, a different gameplan was put into fruition on the opening night of the IAAF World Championships London 2017 on Friday (4) in a bid to spoil Farah’s swansong.

Uganda’s Joshua Cheptegei and the Kenyan trio headed by his training partner Geoffrey Kamworor staked out their claim with an opening lap of 61.02 and while surging was the tactic of the day, there was still a moment of deja vu as Farah nearly fell on the last lap for the second World Championships in a row.

But the sapping variances in pace – and another stumble on the last lap – didn’t sufficiently blunt Farah’s legendary speed as the reigning champion secured his tenth successive major track title, a streak which started all the way back to the 5000m at the 2011 World Championships in Daegu, with another irresistible last lap timed at 55.63.
