Mo Farah scars will inspire Brit to victory

A PULSATING World Championships 10,000m ended with Sir Mo Farah winning yet another gold medal at the London Stadium.

Despite being tested by a series of surges in pace, Farah nevertheless kicked clear in trademark fashion over the final 100m to win in 26 minutes and 49.51 seconds, the fastest time of the year.

"What happened in March at home was unfortunate and I overcame that after getting support from my family and the sports fraternity", Cheptegei told Nation Sport after Friday night's epic race in which Kenya's Paul Tanui won the bronze.

BRITISH Athletics boss Neil Black has answered Mo Farah's critics by giving the athlete his full backing on the eve of the world championships.

Since missing out on gold by a hair's breadth in Daegu in 2011 after Ibrahim Jeilan unleashed one of the greatest ever final laps, Farah has won world doubles in 2013 and 2015 and Olympic doubles in 2012 and 2016.

Dolores Park Shooting in San Francisco Injures 3
Juhasz said many parents and children did not react fast enough to the danger because they thought the gunshots were fireworks. Hatter , a witness who goes by that name, told the SF Gate that he saw some park regulars confront the group of men.

Yet he was adamant he would be "fine" to shoot for his fifth consecutive golden 5,000/10,000m distance double at a global championship as he had four days of recovery time before the heats of the shorter event on Wednesday.

Farah, who will focus on road racing after he has run in two Diamond League meets - in Birmingham and Zurich - following the championships, ran to his family after he had won.

Very few athletes earn a cheer greater than Usain Bolt on the same night of competition.

Farah contests the 10,000 metre final on Friday at 9.20 p.m. ahead of the 5,000 metre first round on August 9 at 8.05 p.m.

"It was about believing in my sprint finish and knowing that I have been in that position before", he added.

Economic growth blows past expectations in May, powered by energy industry
The Commerce Department , which releases the data, will revise it in coming months, once it gets more accurate data. The result was the best since October 2000 when the economy posted year-over-year growth of 4.7 per cent.

Farah, who was almost tripped up on the final lap of a hugely exciting race, proved too good once again for all-comers to further etch his name into track and field history.

"I needed a scan and got a few stitches. It's special", Farah said. I deal with things like Mo wants it, like I want to do it.

Bolt ran a time of 10.08 seconds in his heat without really stepping out of second gear, while compatriot Yohan Blake and Christian Coleman of the United States also progressed from the preliminary round. They then joined him on his lap of honour. "I had to dig deep with 1,600 metres to go and think don't let the gap go, try and cover every move and just try and be strong", he said. "This is the result and I'm very much happy because my star has started shining", he said.

"The crowd were incredible, I love them all".

"It was one of the toughest races of my life", said Farah. "At 24, she's still developing and, although gold might be just out of reach, when the final comes around on Monday, I'm backing Laura to take a gutsy silver".

Woman Calls 911 With Boa Constrictor Wrapped Around Her Neck
Neighbors on the street declined to comment, although some witnessed the scene after the woman ran outside to wait for EMS. She then goes on to explain that she rescued two boa constrictors the day before and that she has 11 snakes altogether.

Kamworor exchanged the lead with Cheptegei performing the same role as he had in the Olympic final in Rio.
