LONDON (AP) — Portland's Galen Rupp won the silver medal in the men's 10,000 meters Saturday night at the London Olympics. The former University of Oregon track star Galen Rupp was edged out of the top-slot by his training partner Mo Farah.
Farah's win in the 10k gave Britain three gold medals in track and field in about one hour on Saturday night.
The Somali-born Farah kicked away from a big pack coming into the final straight and won in 27 minutes, 30.42 seconds, holding off Rupp who took silver in 27:30.90.
Tariku Bekele finished in 27:31.43 to pick up bronze for Ethiopia.
Earlier Saturday, Jessica Ennis won the heptathlon and Greg Rutherford won the long jump for Britain.
