Watch BBC Announcers And Commentators Go Berserk As Mo Farah Won Gold In The 5,000 Meters

Mo Farah scored a royal double for Great Britain in winning the 10,000m and today's 5,000m, and the importance of his win can really only be understood through how their media covered the event. Here, then, is the final 150 meters of his race, with isolated cameras on announcer Steve Cram and the BBC analysis team. NBC's presentation is rightfully criticized for its focus on American athletes and ignorance of other countries, but broadcasters pulling for their home team athletes is in no way restricted to the U.S.A.
