Former Emerald Ridge standout Hassan Mead kicks off world championships in 10000...

LONDON—We’ve arrived at London Stadium!

We are a few hours away from the start of competition at the IAAF World Track & Field Championships at London Stadium, the site of the 2012 Olympic track & field competition, and the site of Mo Farah’s greatest triumph in front of his countrymen.

Among those looking to knock off Farah in tonight’s 10000 meter final is former Emerald Ridge HS/Puyallup standout Hassan Mead (left/photo by Paul Merca), which is the last event of the evening.

Besides the 10000 finals tonight, there’s action in the mens 100, discus, and long jump, while the women’s pole vault and the 1500 qualifying rounds will be contested.
