The Kenyans worked as a team to try and break Farah, but he showed a steely determination to win in a fast 27:01 in hot and humid conditions. As Galen Rupp faded from third to fifth in the last lap, Mo confirmed his postion as one of Britain’s greatest ever athletes.

At the London Anniversary Games Jess was not even sure about competing in Beijing. She said later that she would have settled for a bronze. She showed all the mystic of an Olympic champion to do the “impossible.” She also showed real class, in the middle of competition, as she hugged Katarina Johnson-Thompson, who suffered the nightmare of three fouls in the long jump.

Usain Bolt had struggled with injury, hardly raced all season, and had run some awful times. You kept waiting for him to announce that he would not be going to Beijing. He had everything to lose and nothing to gain. He stumbled coming out of the blocks in the semi-final and almost missed qualifying for the final. You had a sense of impending doom. He called the victory the “hardest race” of his career. As Gatlin sensed he might finally get beaten, he started dipping for the line too early and lost his form. Bolt pulled off a miracle victory, just!
