Gebremeskel socks it to shocked Farah
Monday 07 February 2011
Mo Farah must have thought the race was his when Ethiopia's Dejen Gebremeskel lost his right shoe after the opening circuit of the 3,000m race at the Boston Indoor Grand Prix on Saturday. "I thought if I just pushed hard he would give in," the European 5,000m and 10,000m champion confessed. He was wrong. Farah could not shake off his half-shod rival, who sprinted to victory in 7min 35.37sec. The Briton was runner-up in 7:37.81.
Dwain Chambers, the reigning world and European indoor 60m champion, looked tired after his recent South African training trip and pulled out of Saturday's 60m final at the Birmingham Games. Birchfield Harriers' Joel Fearon won it in 6.62 secs.
