Live Athletics: European Championships: 2014 Day Six



We gave Mo Farah such a build-up in the run-up to Glasgow 2014 that I can’t help feeling that to do it again now would be tempting fate. So all I will say this time round is that the men’s 5,000m final takes place on the afternoon of the last day of the championships, a fitting climax to six days of athletics competition – whether reigning champ Farah is racing or not.

The final day of competition also sees the men’s 4x100m relay final: Glasgow silver medallist Adam Gemili is part of the GB team, as is Dwain Chambers, who pulled out of the Commonwealth Games in order to focus on this competition.


Jonathan Edwards presents coverage of the men's marathon on the sixth and final day of the biennial event in Zurich. This discipline was not staged in 2012 due to it being an Olympic year, and Victor Rothlin of Switzerland took the honours four years ago in Barcelona after claiming silver in Gothenburg in 2006. Commentary by Steve Cram, Andrew Cotter and Brendan Foster, and analysis from Colin Jackson, Denise Lewis and Paula Radcliffe, with reports by Phil Jones.
