(AP) Mo Farah of Britain completed back-to-back doubles in long distance races by winning the 5,000-meter gold medal Friday at the world championships.


Farah had already won the 10,000 at the start of the championships and now has repeated the double he achieved at last year's London Olympics. He also won his second consecutive 5,000 title.


The Briton broke from the pack with about 600 meters to go and fended off challenges from Isaiah Koech of Kenya and Hagos Gebrhiwet of Ethiopia in the home straightaway to win in 13 minutes, 26.98 seconds.


Gebrhiwet took the silver in 13:27.26, the same time credited to Koech for the bronze.
