Mo Farah does the double

Mo Farah has won the 5,000m to claim his second gold medal of the London Olympics.

Mo Farah has won the 5,000m.

The last lap of the race saw him break away from the pack in spectacular style and none of the other athletes ever looked like a real threat. Straight after crossing the line, Farah dropped to the floor and started doing sit-ups as if he'd just walked once around the track.

 

This win accompanies the gold medal he won in the 10,000m earlier this week, putting him in a elite group with five other athletes who've won both the 10,000m and 5,000m finals at the same Olympics.

 

"It's just unbelievable. I had a lot of confidence coming into the race, I knew I just had to hold onto it," said a beaming Farah. "It all worked out well. It's amazing, two gold medals, who would have thought that? I just want to thank everyone that's supported me."

Great Mo many congratulations well done, in a class of your own. I see MSN we have had the Beckham 5, Beckham & the Beckham boys on the home page all day. Talk about maximum publicity. It's a wonder we haven't had Austin7 sorry Harper7. Some people know how to milk it, There are other people in the country beside the Beckhams though you wouldn't think so and better talented

Forget about the Bolt, the Mobot is the man of the games for sure.

 

I waited a whole week to watch what I presumed would be, and like everybody else I was not left to be disappointed.

 

There used to be an advert for 'Peas', it went like this, "Sorry mate, your too late, the best pea's have gone to Farrows", but with what I've just seen, the above could be re-invented to say  "Sorry chaps, about your mishaps, but the best Gold has gone to Farah".

It's no  great surprise that China,America,and Britain have done so well in these games under the current social/political climate..Those with independent thought from the mainstream will know exactly what i mean.And those who haven't will do their usual scratching of the head and say:leftist ****,what's he talking about?.

Miss Jacqui Coram

 

"Can't you JUST SAY WELL DONE and not turn it into some political statement, you must be a barrel of fun to be with!!!"

 

No i can't.Not when there are mountains of problems that need our attention in this world...I'm sorry but i can't and will never share your euphoria at such pointless tripe as these Olympic Games-the key is in "games".
