Day 7 of the World Athletics Championships 2013 always begged to be historic.

With Great Britain's Mo Farah aiming to become only the second man in history to achieve the double-double of holding both the 5,000-meter and 10,000-meter titles from the World Championships and the Olympics at the same time, the British runner had a chance to secure major history on the Moscow stage. The likeable Englishman duly delivered to the delight of everyone back home.

Who else secured the goods on Day 7 of the major international meeting? Let's take a look at the latest round of results, highlights and remaining schedule.

As already touched upon, Farah's historic win is undoubtedly the result of the day. British fans come to a stop every time the Olympic winner runs, and once again, the 30-year-old emerged victorious. Farah's time of 13 minutes and 26.98 seconds saw the runner claim his fifth outdoor long-distance title, a feat he was understandably joyous about, as reported by BBC Sport's Aimee Lewis:

I never thought in my career I would achieve something like this.

This was very tough - it was all left to the last two laps. I had a lot of pressure but at the same time I enjoy it. I am very proud to represent my country and hold the Union Jack. To all the people who give me great support I can't thank you enough. Thank you to all the people back home - I am very proud.

British hopes received another boost in the men's 200-meter semifinal, where Adam Gemili ran the second-fastest time in the nation's history. As reported by Simon Hart of the Telegraph, the 19-year-old's time of 19.98 seconds sees him line up against Usain Bolt in Saturday's final.

Alongside Farah's personal glory, the Luzhniki Stadium also saw another individual triumph in her individual events. Jamaica's Shelley-Ann Fraser-Pryce overcame the threat of Olympic champion Allyson Felix—who failed to finish through injury—to become the double world champion in both the 100-meter and 200-meter races.

Staying on the track, USA's triumph in the men's 4x400-meter relay was arguably overshadowed by Russia's terrific third-place finish. Coming one year after the Americans were shocked by the Bahamas in London's Olympic final, those representing the Stars and Stripes ran 2:58:71 to secure the prize.

While the Bahamas failed to qualify for the final, the home crowd roared Russia to bronze, narrowly missing out on the silver medal with a time of 2:59:90 compared to Jamaica's 2:59:88.

Away from running, Germany's David Storl made the greatest impact with a controversial shot put win. The German's winning throw was initially ruled out, only for judges to let the attempt stand after consulting the nearest camera.
