Farah had been airlifted to a hospital with a stomach ailment at his U.S. training camp barely a month ago but was good enough for gold in two races in five days.Britain finished with 12 gold medals and 23 medals in total, just edging France, which had nine gold and 23 medals overall.The only athlete who could have stolen the day from Farah was Dutch double sprint champion Dafne Schippers.Instead, it was Britain that sped to gold.It was better for Britain in the men's relay, where 400-meter champion Martyn Rooney won his second gold by anchoring the team home in front of Russia and Poland. The British 4x100-meter relay squad, including 200-meter champion Adam Gemili, added a second gold.
