RIO DE JANEIRO -- Tripped or not, it seems nothing can stop Mo Farah over 10,000 meters in a major championship. Adidas Golden Knights Jerseys .Not his training partner clipping his heel in the Olympic final. Not the assembled power of Kenyas best trying to wear him down. Not the final kick of rival Paul Tanui.Farah, with thoughts of his daughter Rihanna flashing through his mind, proved again he is in a league of his own at the moment -- and right up there with the greatest in history.In a thrilling Olympic final, the Somali-born British runner even had time to put his hands on top of his head in the trademark Mobot sign, as well-known to distance runners as Usain Bolts signature pose.Its never easy but everyone knows what I can do, Farah said. I thought about all my hard work, and that it could all be gone in a minute.Farah has three Olympic gold medals from two Olympics and is preparing for the defense of his 5,000 title next week. A good bet considering he has gold in all major races over the distance going back to 2011.Although he would surely welcome a little simpler race next Saturday, when he has a chance to become the first man to win back-to-back Olympic long-distance doubles since Finnish great Lasse Viren in the 1970s.All was going well early on in the 10,000, when Farah was safely running in the pack with American training partner Galen Rupp. Then, after 10 laps, Rupp clipped Farahs heel and the defending champion was down.I bumped into him, there was a lot of pushing, Rupp said.Suddenly, Farahs path to a gold medal was significantly more difficult.When I fell down. For one moment I was thinking, `Oh my race is over, my dream is over, Farah said.Then, amid the mayhem of tens of thousands of fans shouting in disbelief, Farahs thoughts turned to his family and how he still needed a gold to keep everyone happy.Id promised my older daughter Rihanna I was going to get a medal for her and in my mind I was thinking I cant let her down, said Farah, who flashed a thumbs-up sign to show he was OK. The twins from 2012 have got one of each and Rihannas missing one so I thought, `I cant, I cant.Once he caught up with the pack again, the Kenyans made their move. Farah is known for his unmatched finishing kick, so wearing him down is the only way to win. And after his comeback from the fall, they would perhaps stand a chance.Not this time.Even when three Kenyans tried to push away from the pack with spurts of acceleration, there was no shaking Farah off.As each lap went down I was getting more confidence, confidence, confidence, he said.Farah took the lead with one kilometer to go, and usually that means the race is over. Yet this time, Tanui would not let go.A bunch of four trailed Farah at the bell, and Tanui saw his chance down the back straight to finally break Farahs hold on long-distance racing.But Farah produced yet another comeback and once he swerved past Tanui going into the final straight, he might as well have started his victory lap. He won in 27 minutes, 5.17 seconds, while Tanui held on for silver in 27:05.64 and Tamirat Tola of Ethiopia took bronze.Farah fell to the track at the finish, his face down, trying hard to take it all in.---Follow Raf Casert on Twitter at Golden Knights Jerseys For Sale . -- Catcher Brett Hayes has agreed to a $630,000, one-year contract with the Kansas City Royals, avoiding salary arbitration. Green Golden Knights Jerseys .Y. -- Jayna Hefford scored the winning goal Friday as Canada survived a scare with a 4-3 win over Sweden at the Four Nations womens hockey tournament. . After dropping their final six games of December, the Wild opened the new calendar year with four consecutive wins. Following a loss to Colorado on Saturday, Minnesota rebounded the following night to blank Nashville 4-0, but then had the tables turned on them Tuesday. It is the recession, or rather the season of abject disappointment, that Newcastle had to have, according to coach Nathan Brown.The Knights terrible year continued on Sunday after they slumped to a club record-equalling 13th successive loss to Manly, 36-16 at Brookvale Oval.After the match Brown admitted the wooden spoon had been destined for Newcastle for much of the season and pleaded with fans not to criticise the current crop of players for the Knights run of outs.Its not fair for people to blame the players for what has happened, Brown said.We are at the end of a recession after hitting rock bottom.It is harder this year than when the club started in 1988. They had more mature players playing, not young kids.We are where we had to go with the club moving forward, we just need to add some experienced players.Newcastle were without Jarrod Mullen, Robbie Rochow and Sione Matautia for the round 21 match with the Sea Eagles. Youth Golden Knights Jerseys. Brown admitted his young players were struggling with the situation.I said to (captain) Trent Hodkinson, Jack Cogger, he must think first grade is a horrible place, Brown said.After showing some improvement in recent weeks in losses to Canberra and Melbourne, the Knights have fallen into bad habits against Cronulla and Manly.But Brown said there was some hope for the future.I just know so many of those young players are going to be good, he said.Four years ago Canberra were in the same boat. There is no way for us as a club to get better than by going through what we are now.I do feel sorry for the supporters. But I dont think the players deserve to be held accountable.
