Being Mo Farah

One for the runners ...
Yesterday Galen Rupp edged Bernard Lagat to win the U.S. Olympic Trials 5,000 meters and earn a second berth on the U.S. Olympic team (he won the 10,000 meters earlier in the week and probably will run both events at the Olympic Games).
Rupp, however, is only the second-best runner in his Alberto Salazar-coached training group. British world 5,000 meters champion Mo Farah was busy as well this week, winning the European Championships 5,000 meters in Helsinki.
Lagat, of course, is no slouch: he is a five-time world champion at distances from 1,500 to 5,000 meters, and he has a drawer full of silver and bronze medals as well, including Olympic silver and bronze.
