No golden ending as Farah signs off with Worlds silver

Muktar Edris of Ethiopia got the better of Mo Farah

Farah normally takes charge on the final lap but this time, following a tactical affair, he found himself playing catch-up over the final 400m as Edris and his fellow Ethopian Yomif Kejelcha led the way.

Farah was less than a second back in 13:33.22, the Kenyan-born America Paul Chelimo winning bronze in 13:33.30.

Mo Farah will also be in action on the penultimate day of the championships in his swansong race, the men's 5,000 metres. They (the Ethiopians) run as a team.

"It's been a long journey but it's been incredible. It didn't quite hit home until I took a few moments to myself where I realised this is it".

"I don't think there was any more I could have done".

"I have a few more races on the track and then I will take a short break and then this chapter of my life is closed". Tactically, I was trying to cover every move. They had a game plan and that was that one was going to sacrifice themselves, but I gave it my all.

"I gave it my all, 110 percent", said Farah.

Colliers International Group Inc
BidaskClub cut Colliers International Group from a "strong-buy" rating to a " buy" rating in a research note on Monday, July 24th. Parametric Portfolio Associates LLC raised its position in shares of Colliers International Group by 21.0% in the first quarter.

Edris is certainly no slouch - the fastest in the world this year with his 12:55.23.

He also won the 5,000m at the 2011 worlds, giving him 10 global golds in all.

But no other athlete - not Haile Gebrselassie, not Kenenisa Bekele - has won four gold medals in the 5,000m at the World Championships; nor indeed a fourth medal of any colour.

Yet even in defeat, Farah demonstrated his champion's spirit as he fought back in the dying metres when it looked as if he would be shut out of the medals completely.

The pace soon dropped dramatically, however, with the first kilometer taking 2:48, a pace that favoured Farah.

Then came surge after counter surge, Farah riding on the back of each one.

"It was close but not close enough but when I reflect I've got to be happy with that in my first-ever high jump final", she said.
