    RIO DE JANEIRO - Mo Farah joined some of the greats of Olympics distance running as he retained his 10,000 metre title but it was his composure as much as his athletic ability that stood out. Air Max 98 Fossil For Sale .The Britons name can now be listed alongside those of Emil Zatopek, Lasse Viren, Haile Gebrselassie and Kenenisa Bekele as the only men to have won the title at successive Games.Yet the way Farah achieved his latest success was all the more remarkable for the fact that he fell early in the race, picked himself up and eventually made his way through the field, surging to the front at the death in his trademark style.He never loses his head, said former training partner Galen Rupp, who finished fifth and took responsibility both for bumping Farah to the ground and helping him recover. In all the times Ive trained with him, he always keeps his composure well.There was a lot of pushing, guys slowing down and people pushing from behind. I didnt want it to effect the race at all. I told him to get behind me and I would lead him back up. Im just grateful he was still able to run his race.Farah admitted he came pretty close to losing his cool and had to play some mind games to stop thinking his race was over and get himself back in the reckoning. No wonder he was, in his own words, mentally tired at the end.What got him through was thinking of his older daughter Rihanna, the promise he made to her that he would bring back a medal, and the reassurance of knowing that he had more than half the race left after going down in the 10th lap.I told myself dont panic, dont panic, he said on Saturday night at the Olympic Stadium after he had recorded another victory that must have sapped a little more spirit from his rivals.I managed to dig deep, Farah said. And how. Kenyan Paul Kipngetich Tanui pushed him so close, finishing a fraction of a second behind the winning time of 27 minutes 5.17 seconds. He also claimed the Somali-born Briton was an inspiration, but could have been forgiven for describing him as an irritatingly impressive obstacle.The 33-year-old who became Britains first track and field athlete to win three Olympic gold medals just never seems to have a bad day.At longer distances - half-marathon and marathon - he is at the start of his career and has some work to do. But on the track he must seem almost unbeatable, particularly on nights like this.One of the things that keeps me going is winning medals for my country and making my nation proud, Farah said.I remember 2012 like yesterday and most people have had four years to try to beat me. Its nice to make history and Im going to enjoy it.Asked after the race what made him such a successful athlete, Farah pointed to the way he has learnt what his body can and cant do, and the confidence he has gained from his training endeavours repeatedly paying off.He might just as well have said that he was born with an amazing talent and he has found, more by luck than judgement at first, the right way to hone it for success.Farah wanted to be a soccer player and he is still an enthusiastic fan of Premier League team Arsenal but fortunately for Britain, and the world of track and field, his speed and endurance was spotted early on.The controversy over his Nike Oregon Project coach Alberto Salazar still lurks in the background, with the New York Times having reported in June that the United States Anti-Doping Agency was investigating him.Salazar has emphatically denied any involvement with performance-enhancing drugs and Farah has never been accused of wrongdoing, but the runner was still questioned on the subject after this victory.Beyond saying again that he supports clean sport, which he did in his media conference, Farah can do little more to make the topic go away than keep winning and passing his doping tests.His next chance to shine comes on Saturday in the 5,000m, when he can become only the second man to defend both that and his 10,000m title. You can almost hear his rivals trying to convince themselves he is beatable already. Nike Air Max 98 All Gold . LOUIS -- Theres no telling how these wacky World Series games will end. Nike Air Max 98 Black . The International Olympic Committee released the official list of bid cities on Friday after the deadline for applications had passed. The candidates -- all previously announced in their own countries -- are: Almaty, Kazakhstan; Beijing; Krakow, Poland; Lviv, Ukraine; Oslo, Norway; and Stockholm. . Now, with Game 6 set for Fenway Park and an 8:07 p.m. ET first pitch, the Detroit Tigers face the unenviable task of having to beat the Boston Red Sox twice, on the road, to advance to the World Series. CHASKA, Minn. -- The Americans played Friday morning as if maybe they are the best team ever assembled.Jordan Spieth and Patrick Reed set the tone, Rickie Fowler finally won a match and the Americans got this Ryder Cup off to a red and rousing start at Hazeltine with the first sweep of the opening session by either side since 1975.This was just what the Americans -- wearing red shirts and navy slacks -- needed to try to avoid a record fourth straight loss, and the 4-0 start was fitting. That 1975 team had Arnold Palmer as the captain, and the Kings golf bag from that Ryder Cup was on the first tee as a tribute.With everything going on -- me not having a point and Phil being a big part of getting the players a lot more involved to Arnie passing and him being a huge part of the week, this is big for us, Fowler said.Mickelson was the catalyst behind a task force geared toward getting the players more involved. U.S. captain Davis Love III was surprisingly bold last week when he said the message to his players would be that they comprised the best golf team maybe ever assembled.The 1981 team, with 11 major champions, is considered the best ever. That team was the last to sweep a session (Saturday afternoon fourballs).Europe had to pick itself up for Friday afternoon fourballs.Four-nil is a fair result for the way we played, European captain Darren Clarke said. Its not an ideal start by any stretch of the imagination, but weve come back from deficits like this in the past.Spieth and Reed might have delivered the most critical point againstt Henrik Stenson and Justin Rose, who were undefeated two years ago at Gleneagles. Nike Air Max 98 Yellow. Spieth rolled in a birdie putt on the second hole, and the U.S. never trailed the rest of the way. Europe won only one hole at No. 9 to cut the deficit to 2 down. Momentum didnt last, though, as Reed rolled in a 10-foot putt to halve the 10th hole and Spieth made a tricky 12-foot birdie putt on the 11th for another halve.Johnson and Kuchar ran their record to 3-0 -- they won both their matches at Medinah in 2012 -- with the shortest match. They closed out Lee Westwood and Thomas Pieters on the 14th hole.The middle foursomes matches turned a tight start into a sweep.Rory McIlroy did his part, rolling in a pair of birdie putts on the 13th and 14th holes for a 2-up lead with four to play. Andy Sullivan, one of six European rookies, chipped far too strong on the 15th that led to bogey. And with the match all square at the par-3 17th and Fowler about 10 feet away, Sullivan found the water. McIlroy missed a tough 20-foot putt on the 18th that would have halved the match.Jimmy Walker and Zach Johnson bogeyed the opening two holes, but Sergio Garcia and Martin Kaymer couldnt take advantage. Europe led for 10 straight holes until a bogey on the 12th squared the match, and the Americans poured it on. They birdied the next two, won the 15th with a par and closed out the sweep with a birdie on the 16th for a 4-and-2 victory. Wholesale NFL Jerseys Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys NFL Jerseys From China Cheap Nike Basketball Jerseys Wholesale Hockey Jerseys China Nike Baseball JerseysCheap College Jerseys China Cheap Football Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Canada Wholesale NHL Jerseys Canada Wholesale Nike MLB Jerseys Canada Cheap NBA Jerseys Authentic Canada Stitched Soccer Jerseys Canada Cheap Jerseys Canada NFL ' ' '
