Bolt, Farah in early action at world championships

LONDON (AP) — Usain Bolt and Mo Farah are poised to grab the early attention at the world championships.

The Jamaican sprinter will compete in the opening round of the 100 meters, a race that should amount to a stroll. Gold in the 10,000 meters is at stake for Farah.

On the opening night of the 10-day championships at the sold-out Olympic Stadium, the fervor of the home crowd will be on show when Farah sets out for another long-distance double. He has done it twice at the world championships, and twice at the Olympics.

For Bolt, the 100 will be his only individual race in his farewell championships.
