Great Britain’s Mo Farah repeats as men’s 10,000-meter gold medalist

You may be able to slow down Great Britain’s Mo Farah, but don’t expect him to stay down for long.

Despite a brief fall less than halfway through Saturday night’s 10,000-meter race, Farah defended his gold medal in the event with a winning time of 27:05.17.

The most memorable part of the race was Farah’s stumble — and the confident thumb’s up he flashed shortly after getting back up. He was accidentally tripped by American Galen Rupp, Farah’s training partner. Rupp finished fifth in the final.
