Shocker! Mo Farah Is Upset in His Final Track Race

The four-time Olympic champion ran a valiant race in his final appearance on the track at a major championship but could not quite catch Ethiopia's Muktar Edris.

Like Bolt, Farah would finish his career with an usual feeling of defeat - he had won this event in the past three world championships and two Olympic Games, together with three world titles and two Olympic gold medals in 10,000m.

But he was beaming again on Sunday morning, back in his tracksuit and clambering outside a London Eye capsule on top of the 135m high wheel.

Having been pipped at the line by the unknown Ethiopian Ibrahim Jeilan in the 10,000m days earlier, Farah upgraded his silver to gold over the shorter distance, holding off a late charge from American Bernard Lagat. I didn't have a single bit left at the end. "That's what they did tonight, and the better man won". You guys get to me - you never write the facts. Sometimes I find it freakish how certain people write certain things to suit how they want to sell the story.

He said there was "no secret" to his ability, adding: "Just work hard, believe in yourself and keep grafting - that's the key".

"You could see in the heat, they wanted to prove a point and show me". I was known as normal Mo and then overnight after London I was "Mo", I couldn't go anywhere. One of them was going to sacrifice himself, and that's what they did.

"I've worked so hard, I don't know what has just happened out there", Pearson said.

If there is a dream to realise as he winds down his career it is to spend more time with Hassan and he described movingly in his biography what it meant when he finally was reunited with him in 2003.

Behind Edris, Farah dug deep to battle back from fourth to second when space opened up on the inside over the last few meters to take silver in 13:33.22. What I've achieved has been incredible.

Chelimo bolted to the lead, then slowed the pace down in what developed as a tactical race, USA Track & Field reported.

Chelimo fell with four laps to go on the wet track in Wednesday's semifinals but came back and qualified. Put me in another championship, and I'll bring home a medal.
