LONDON -- Mo Farah won the 5,000 meters to complete an Olympic distance double for Britain on Saturday night.
Backed by a boisterous capacity crowd at 80,000-seat Olympic Stadium, Farah surged ahead late and held on to win in 13 minutes, 41.66 seconds. He still had the energy to do a few playful situps on the track before he grabbed a flag for the real celebrations.
Portland's Galen Rupp came in 7th. Rupp had finished just behind Farah for silver in the 10,000 meters last Saturday. Lopez Lomong, a former 'Lost Boy' from Sudan who now lives in Lake Oswego, finished 10th in the 5,000.
Dejen Gebremeskel of Ethiopia won silver in 13:41.98 Saturday, while Thomas Longosiwa of Kenya took bronze in 13:42.36.
The Somali-born Farah won the 10,000 meters on Britain's Super Saturday last weekend, the same night Jess Ennis won the heptathlon and Greg Rutherford the long jump.
