Shanghai, China - As the runners in the 5000m at the Shanghai Samsung Diamond League splashed their way around the track, Hagos Gebrhiwot looked increasingly at home.
Running his first senior 5000m on the track he may have been, running in illustrious company he certainly was, but Gebrhiwot looked like a man who belonged.
Shannon Rowbury clocked world leading 4:05.92 in the 1500 m and Don Cabral won the steeple in US college record 8:19.14. But possibly the most special is a unique one evening double of Mo Farah with 3:34.66 at the 1500 m and European leading of the year 13:12.87 in the 5000 m.
