EXTRA/Four more U.S. medals, but no fairy-tale farewells for Farah & Bolt

PALM DESERT, August 13, 2017 – Sure, the United States women’s 4×100 m relay team won gold at the IAAF World Championships, but the day featured two great champions who did not fulfill the hopes of their fans.

Mo Farah finished second in the 5,000 m, with American Paul Chelimo winning the bronze, and Usain Bolt – in his final race – pulled up on the anchor of the men’s relay as Great Britain beat the U.S. at the tape.

Allyson Felix set a career record with another World Championships medal and the U.S. is approaching the all-time Worlds medal record, with one day remaining. All the details, previews of Sunday’s finals and much more in this EXTRA edition of The Sports Examiner.
