Mo Farah was able to hold off a field of unbelievably talented runners in order to capture the gold medal for host country Great Britain on Saturday. United States runner Galen Rupp won the silver with a mad dash in the home stretch. Both men were elated, particularly Farah, who got to capture the medal in front of his countrymen who were roaring him on to victory. You can definitely see his unbridled joy in these photos.
The race capped off a huge day in track and field for Great Britain, as they took three gold medals throughout Saturday, also picking up the top honors in women's heptathlon and men's long jump.
