Mo Farah advances in 5,000 at worlds

26 August 2015, 08:03

Beijing — The Latest from the world championships:


5:20 a.m.

Mo Farah stumbled a couple of times on the track Wednesday as he started the second stage of his bid for a long-distance double at the world championships.

Farah, who won the 5,000- and 10,000-meter gold medals at the 2012 London Olympics and has already won the 10,000 title in Beijing, stumbled halfway through his opening heat of the 5,000 and again tripped in a tight pack about 150 meters from the finish. He recovered his footing quickly to cross in second place in his heat to advance in 13 minutes, 19.44 seconds.


4:40 a.m.

Usain Bolt will be back in action in the semifinals of the 200 meters on Day 5 of the world championships, which got underway with the first round of the 5,000 meters and qualification in the women's hammer throw.

Triple jump for the men and the women's 800 will follow in a morning session that concludes with the first round in the 110-meter hurdles.

There are five finals on the program Wednesday, with the men's javelin and the 400 and women's pole vault, 400-meter hurdles and steeplechase.
