Mo Farah at a 2016 IAAF Diamond League meet.

Gold: Mo Farah (Great Britain)
Silver: Paul Tanui (Kenya)
Bronze: Tamirat Tola (Ethiopia)

Mo Farah successfully defended his Olympic 10,000m gold medal on Saturday.

Farah seemed relaxed from the start, shadow boxing with cameras before the race and even waving to fans after he started running. He moved freely from the back to the front of the pack.

On the 10th lap, Farah tripped over U.S. runner Galen Rupp, his training partner. Farah quickly got back up to his feet and flashed a thumbs up.

On the final lap, Farah passed Kenya’s Paul Tanui and did his signature “Mobot” pose as he crossed the finish line.
