The stadium will be packed Friday for the opening of the world championships — and not only to catch a glimpse of Usain Bolt. After all, this is Mo Farah’s house. While Bolt races in an early heat of the 100 metres, the British long-distance runner will chase after the night’s only medal in the 10,000. He’s dominated the event, winning two straight world titles to go with two more Olympic golds, including the 2012 London Games. Both Bolt and Farah are moving on after the season — Bolt is calling it quits, and Farah, also racing in the 5,000 at these championships, will swap out the shorter races for the marathon.
