Ethiopia’s Edris Thwarts Farah’s Bid for Fifth Straight Major Distance Double

LONDON – Ethiopia’s Muktar Edris came out on top Saturday in the 5,000-meter race at the World Athletics Championships in London, thwarting British legend Mo Farah’s bid for a fifth consecutive major distance double.

Edris finished with a time of 13:32.79 to outpace Farah, who had a battle on his hands at the end to hold off Kenyan-born American Paul Kipkemoi Chelimo and claim silver.

Farah, who ran a 13:33.22, was seeking to win a fifth straight 5,000-meter/10,000-meter major double dating back to the 2012 London Olympics.

He won the 10,000-meter race eight days ago for his 10th gold medal at an Olympics or World Championships.

The 34-year-old Somalia-born Farah, who had said this would be his last World Championships, will now turn his focus to marathon running.
