Haile Gebrselassie
  • May 17th, 2009

Enjoy the report by CNN on Ethiopian legendary runner Haile Gebrselassie.

The report revolves around his childhood, his family, Ethiopia and events leading up to this first marathon world record in 2007 at Berlin (2:04:26). Its an insightful peek into this versatile athlete. I don’t want to give any spoilers, but his house is practically a ‘palace’ and what adorable kids he has.

Gebrselassie has achieved major competition wins at distances between 1500m and marathon, moving from outdoor, indoor and cross country running to road running in the latter part of his career.

He has broken 25 world records and won numerous Olympic and World Championship titles, and is widely considered one of the greatest distance runners in history.
