In an absolutely fascinating race, Galen Rupp of the United States became the first American since Billy Mills in 1964 to medal in the men’s 10,000m, grabbing a silver in the final lap.

Rupp was in the middle of the pack for most of the race, staying within striking distance until the last few laps, when he made his move into the top four. In the final 200m of the race, he turned up the speed and blazed past Ethiopian brothers Tariku and Kenenisa Bekele to take the silver medal.

The race was won by Great Britain’s Mohamed Farah in 27:30.42, and was the third gold medal won by England in three straight track and field events on the day. Jessica Ennis won the women’s heptathlon and Greg Rutherford won the men’s long jump to set Farah up for the trifecta.
