Make it a double for Mo Farah.
The British distance runner won his second gold medal of the 2013 World Championships after winning the 5,000 meters on Day 7. He had won the 10,000 meters on Day 1. It's the second double for Farah after he won gold in both events at the 2012 Olympics.
This kind of dominance is something to be admired. There's Farah, and then there's everyone else. He finished almost 30 seconds ahead of silver medalist Hagos Gebrhiwet.
BBC revealed what drove Farah to such a great performance.

Aside from Farah's win, there were five other finals to take place on Friday: Tatyana Lysenko won gold in the women's hammer throw; Aleksandr Menkov won gold in the men's hammer throw; David Storl took home gold in the men's shot put; Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce finished first in the women's 200 meters; and the United States won the 4x400 meter men's relay.
Allyson Felix was the reigning women's 200-meter champion after winning gold at the 2012 Olympics. She was no doubt one of the favorites coming into the World Championships.
After about 40 meters, she pulled up and wasn't able to finish the race.
According to the IAAF's Jon Mulkeen, Felix ended up tearing her right hamstring.

Felix's loss was Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce's gain after the 26-year-old earned herself a double, with gold medals in both the 200 meters and 100 meters.
It's only the third time a woman has won the 100-meter, 200-meter double (h/t World Championships' Twitter account).

The 200 meters also saw a great finish between Murielle Ahoure and Blessing Okagbare for the silver medal. Ahoure finished approximately six one-thousandths of a second ahead of Okagbare (h/t World Championships' Twitter account).

The United States is still on top of the total medal count. Their 16 medals are five more than Russia in second place and seven above Kenya, who are third. The US and Russia are both tied at five gold medals apiece. Kenya, Germany and Jamaica have a three-way tie for third, at three.
