Defar wins 5,000m women's gold
Ethiopia's Meseret Defar has won the gold medal in the women's 5,000m final at the London 2012 Games on Friday night.
The Ethiopian denied her compatriot Tirunesh Dibaba the chance to add another title to the 10,000m crown she won a week ago, having taken gold in both events in Beijing.
Instead Defar, who won 5,000m gold eight years ago in Athens, held off her challengers down the home straight to win in 15m 04.25s.
Kenya's Vivian Cheruiyot was second with Dibaba getting the bronze.
British duo Jo Pavey and Julia Bleasdale finished seventh and eighth respectively.
