Caleb Ndiku, Mo Farah through to 5,000m final
Mo Farah’s offered to shield his twofold world separation titles very nearly unhinged on Wednesday as he was stumbled coming into the last 200 meters of his 5,000m warmth.
Extraordinary Britain’s Farah, who won 10,000m gold on Saturday, was in control of the race all through yet was cut coming into the last curve, abandoning him with a slice toe and making him lurch seriously before amending himself.
To heaves from the Bird’s Nest group in Beijing, Farah relaunched himself to complete second behind Ethiopian victor Yomif Kejelcha, the world’s quickest entertainer in 2015, who timed 13min 19.38sec in the hot morning sun.
Another Ethiopian, Hagos Gebrhiwet, won the first warmth, timing 13:45.00 to set up a mouth-watering conflict in the last booked for 2.30pm on Saturday.
