13, 2016 Mo Farah of Britain, who won gold in the 5,000 and 10,000 meters at the 2012 London Games, won the 10,000 on Saturday night at the Rio Olympics after falling to the track about midway through the race.
Farah, who moved to Britain from Somalia when he was 8, is among track legends like Emil Zatopek of Czechoslovakia and Kenenisa Bekele of Ethiopia as men who have won the 5,000 and 10,000 meters at the same Olympics.
Lasse Viren of Finland, who completed such a double twice, fell during the 10,000 at the 1972 Munich Games and went on to win.
He got tripped up but smoothly returned to his feet, hardly missing a step, and never showed any signs of damage.
He unleashed a punishing kick in the final lap that no one could match, punctuating the performance with his trademark move, the Mo-bot, folding his arms in a heart shape over his head.
