Rwanda’s debutant Olympian Robert Kajuga set a personal best time of 27:56.67 to finish 14th in the London Olympics 10,000m men’s final last night at the Olympic Stadium.
The 27-year old, who went into the competition with a best time of 28:03:24 made the most drastic improvement of his career, setting an impressive time in one of the most closely contested race ever.
Somali-born Mo Farah became the first Briton to win Olympic 10,000m gold with a tremendous victory in the Olympic Stadium. The 29-year-old won in a time of 27 minutes, 30.42 seconds.
Farah’s triumph ended a run of four successive Ethiopian wins and stopped Kenenisa Bekele from winning a third consecutive title.
Galen Rupp of the United States finished second, while Ethiopia’s Tariku Bekele finished third. The two-time champion finished fourth, behind his young brother.
The gold is Farah’s first Olympic medal in his second Games - four years ago in Beijing, he failed to qualify for the 5,000m final.
