Sir Mo Farah reaches 5,000m final at 2017 World Championships
By Our Correspondent, 10/08/2017, New Delhi

 

 

Sir Mo Farah remains on track for a golden double at the World Championships after qualifying for the 5,000m final, but he is refusing to take a fairytale finale for granted.

The 34-year-old finished second in his heat on Wednesday evening in a time of 13 minutes 30.18 seconds and is now eyeing Saturday's final ahead of his planned track retirement at the end of the month.

Farah has already won the 10,000m - Great Britain's only medal of the championships so far - to defend the title he won in 2013 and 2015.

And a double defence is on the cards after Farah shrugged off a knee injury and a cut leg, having been spiked in his 10,000m triumph.

Wednesday's heat was run in soaking conditions at the London Stadium and Farah is wary of missing out on gold after Usain Bolt, retiring after the championships, only won bronze in the 100m on Saturday.

"You've seen it with Usain Bolt, it happens. It would have been nice to see him win but it didn't happen and no-one is going to give it to you - no matter who you are, even Usain Bolt," he said.
