AFRICANS WELCOMING PACESETTER HAILE, by Alfons Juck, EME News LONDON (GBR): Ugandan Stephen Kiprotich is looking forward to returning to the British capital to chase his first London Marathon win. The Olympic and World gold medalist says he is excited by the prospect of Haile Gebrselassie setting the pace at the Virgin Money London Marathon. "Haile is the master of the roads so it's great to have him as a pacemaker," Kiprotich said. Ibrahim Jeilan, who won 10,000m World Championship gold in Daegu 2011 and is making his marathon debut, said of his Ethiopian countryman: "I didn't ever compete against Haile, so I will be happy to stand on the start line with our great runner. With Haile pacing, we have a good chance of a fast time. I can't say I'll beat him [Mo] again as we all prepare to win and to beat one another, but I've prepared well and something good will happen," added Jeilan. Two-times New York Marathon winner Geoffrey Mutai says he is determined to run well after dropping out in London last year a ...

HAILE GEBRSELASSIE TO RUN AS PACEMAKER IN 2014 London Marathon The man regarded by many as the greatest distance runner of all time will be the lead pacemaker for the elite men’s race at the 2014 Virgin Money London Marathon on Sunday 13 April, just five days short of his 41st birthday. Haile Gebrselassie, who won two Olympic and four World Championship gold medals at 10,000m and twice broke the marathon world record, will pace the leading men to the 30km point at world-record speed. Among the world-class athletes following the Ethiopian’s lead will be Britain’s Double Olympic and world champion Mo Farah, the current marathon world record holder Wilson Kipsang, the reigning London Marathon champion Tsegaye Kebede, the world and Olympic marathon champion Stephen Kiprotich, and the London Marathon course record holder Emmanuel Mutai. The field will also include the newest marathon star from Gebrselassie’s home nation, the 18-year-old Tsegaye Mekonnen, who’s been added to the line-up after his sens ...
Last week, I asked 'what was the best marathon'. Well, according to William Cockerell in his 2006 book 'The 50 Greatest Marathons of all Time', it is one that promised a lot and delivered. This one had it all! The men's field was brimming with talent. A previous 2-time winner (El Mouaziz), the world record holder (Khalid Khannouchi), a 5-time world cross-country champion (Paul Tergat), the European champion (Stefano Baldini), the course record holder (Antonio Pinto), plus arguably the greatest runner of all time (Haile Gebrselassie). Not a bad line up! Halfway, around 63 minutes, the race only really began at 17 miles when the leading group put the hammer down. Surges from Gebrselassie split the pack at 20 miles with only Tergat and Khannouchi for company. The next few miles saw some of the best distance running ever seen as the lead swopped between them. With a mile to go, it was Khannouchi that broke away, as first Gebrselassie and then Tergat found the pace unbearable. Spotting the finishing line, Khan ...

Onuora Proud Of Ethiopia -Says Antelopes Made History -Despite 2-1 Defeat By Eagles Yesterday’s 2-1 loss of The Walya Antelopes of Ethiopia against the visiting Super Eagles has taken nothing away in terms of pride and prestige from the East African side, if the words of Nigerian-born former England-based player, Iffy Onuora are anything to go by. The Ethiopians scored first at Addis Ababa National Stadium, but a thunderous shot from outside the box by Fenerbahçe of Turkey striker, Emmanuel Emenike cancelled out a fluke opener by the hosts, and the AFCON 2013 top scorer silenced the home crowd with a late penalty winner, but Onuora believes that Walya are in the World Cup final play-off is enough for them to celebrate. A country recognised for its long distance runners such as Haile Gebrselassie and Kenenisa Bekele, Ethiopia's footballing journey has gone from being a major player in the foundation of football in Africa and winning the Cup of Nations in 1962, to being confined to the wilderness, as civ ...
For its 40th anniversary, the Berlin Marathon brought in some of the past world record holders and winners including Paul Tergat and Haile Gebrselassie!
Marathon World Record holders are special guests of the Berlin Marathon, by Alfons Juck, EME News BERLIN (GER): Special guests at Sunday´s Berlin Marathon are the runners who achieved here in the past 8 World records. They are seven Patrick Makau, Haile Gebrselassie (twice), Paul Tergat, Ronaldo da Costa on the men side and women Naoko Takahashi, Tegla Loroupe and Christa Vahlensieck

Mo Farah beaten by Kenenisa Bekele in Great North Run thriller Ethiopia's Kenenisa Bekele saw off double world and Olympic champion Mo Farah's late surge to win the Great North Run in a thrilling sprint finish. Britain's Farah, 30, chased down Bekele in the last 400m in a great finale but was pipped to the line by one second. Another Ethiopian, Haile Gebrselassie, was a distant third after falling behind in the last of the 13.1 miles. "I'm disappointed but I was second to a great athlete," said Farah after finishing in one hour and 10 seconds. The sight of Farah and Bekele fighting it out in the last 200m was a fitting conclusion to what had been an eagerly anticipated race from Newcastle upon Tyne to South Shields. The three distance-running greats - Farah, Bekele and Gebrselassie - boast 12 world titles and seven Olympic gold medals between them and were together until 31-year-old Bekele, competing in his first half marathon, made his break down a steep slope. "When Kenenisa went with a mile to go, I th ...
Kenenisa Bekele wins the Great North Run 2013 Kenenisa Bekele just pipped Mo Farah to the line, it was Priscah Jeptoo who ended up beating the two women's favourites. The London Marathon winner took the title ahead of Defar. The Great North Run 2013 results were dominated early on by the big stories of the day - the three-way clash of Mo Farah, Haile Gebrselassie and Kenenisa Bekele, and the women's big hitting rivals of Tirunesh Dibaba and Meseret Defar.
THE Great North Run Kenenisa Bekele and Haile Gebrselassie triumphed in today's elite Great North Run between Newcastle and South Shields. Kenenisa Bekele won the race whereas Haile Gbreselassie is third after Uk's Mo Farah. World and Olympic distance champions Meseret Defar and Tirunesh Dibaba came in second and third respectively for the women's competition following London Marathon champion Priscah Jeptoo of Kenya won the race in 1:05:44. All in all, it is an excellent achievemnet for our athlets once again.
Another one for the to-do-list: You’ll think I did *** all today–two great events, couldn’t be missed. Some 56,000 people took to the streets of Tyneside this morning for the 33rd Great North Run, an event I’ll do some day. Picture it, you’d have to be up the front to make any headway, otherwise you’d be shuffling. World and Olympic champion Mo Farah narrowly missed out on becoming the first UK runner in 25 years to win the elite men's race in a thrilling finish. Ethiopian Kenenisa Bekele held off Farah to finish first in a time 60:08 and Farah, only a second behind him and my man Haile Gebrselassie 3rd. Kenyan, Priscah Jeptoo took the women's elite race just four seconds short of the record time.
Kenenisa Bekele could feel Mo Farah bearing down on him like a hawk swooping in for the kill. This time, however, the prey outfoxed the predator. There was to be no glorious finale for Farah in his first attempt at a half-marathon yet Great Britain's Olympic champion can take solace from the fact that he was beaten here by one of the finest long-distance runners of the modern era. One second was the mere gap that separated Bekele and Farah in the 32nd Great North Run, but the Ethiopian timed it beautifully. He fought his way through the fierce Tyneside wind to finish in 1hr 00min 09sec, with his compatriot Haile Gebrselassie, who set the pace for the majority of the race, third in 1:00.41. For Gebrselassie it was one more record to add to his stellar career, running the fastest half-marathon ever recorded by a man aged 40 or over. Farah set a new British record but missed out on a glorious victory by a matter of yards. As he clawed Bekele's lead back over the final 400m it felt as if a denouement to rival ...

Een bekende uitspraak van hem was: "A lot of people run a race to see who is fastest. I run to see who has the most guts, who can punish himself into exhausting pace, and then at the end, punish himself even more."

KIPSIRO AND KIPSANG OVER HAILE, TIRUNESH CR, by Alfons Juck, EME News MANCHESTER (GBR, May 26): Double Commonwealth Games gold medallist Moses Kipsiro had two reasons for celebration after winning the Bupa Great Manchester Run in a sprint finish ahead of Wilson Kipsang. Kipsiro on a day when Tirunesh Dibaba the World‘s greatest ever track performer claimed the women‘s title with a course record, fulfilled a childhood ambition by competing against the legendary Haile Gebrselassie. The Ugandan on a Sunday morning he will cherish, sped past Kenya‘s Kipsang for a high profile 10km victory by a second in 27:52 to 27:53. Just as importantly he was also ecstatic when finally clashing with Gebrselassie who finished third in 28:00. Then despite denying the Ethiopian superstar a sixth success at the UK meeting which attracted an entry of 40,000 runners of all abilities, he added: „At his age he is still running like us.“ The 40-year-old who fell off the pace in the last kilometer produced a World Masters ...

Ultramarathon legend Scott Jurek blogs about running with Haile Gebrselassie:
Twenty two miles. Though the second half was less Haile Gebrselassie, more Clive Dunn. Dreams of getting inside four hours for the London Marathon should perhaps now be filed alongside World Peace, Swim with Dolphins and Go for Curry with Bob Dylan. Still, Don't Panic, as Lance Corporal Jones might have said, eight weeks to go.
I must say the adidas Boost's do look impressive. However, the interviews with Yohan Blake and Haile Gebrselassie were terribly awkward.

1990s Road Star Joseph Kimani Dead The Kenyan set world bests at 10-K and 12-K. By Peter Gambaccini; Image by Victah Sailer /PhotoRun .. Published November 13, 2012 .. Joseph Kimani of Kenya, a dominant runner on the American road race circuit in the mid-1990s, has died of pneumonia at the age of 40, KIMbia Athletics reports. In 1996, Kimani had established a world 10-K road record of 27:20 in Cleveland, lowering that to 27:04 at the Peachtree Road Race in Atlanta. That effort was a Peachtree record by 52 seconds and is still the event record for that July 4 Atlanta classic. His world standard stood for six years until Haile Gebrselassie clocked 27:02 in 2002. In 1997, Kimani ran a world 12-K best of 33:21 in Evansville, Indiana. Kimani’s 2000 Boulder Boulder 10-K victory was by 57 seconds, still the largest winning margin in that race’s history. His 31:36 at the 1996 Falmouth Road Race is still the second fastest time at that Cape Cod event. Kimani won Green Bay’s Bellin Run four times, Mobile’s ...

Flotrack, in association with adidas, traveled to the home of the best distance runner in history to bring you a behind the scenes look at world record holder Haile Gebrselassie as he heads into his first ever NYC Marathon.

In the first part of the series, Haile tells you about his life. As a child he began running to school and eventually ran his first international race in 1991. He talks about his career with adidas and how he'd like to end his career with an Olympic Marathon.

First, do enough training. Then believe in yourself and say: I can do it. Tomorrow is my day. And then say: the person in front of me, he is just a human being as well; he has two legs, I have two legs, that is all. That is mentally how you prepare- haile gebrselassie

London Olympic 2012 and Nigeria: The Audit. The world greatest sports festival, Olympic 2012 come to an end today. This London edition was full of glamour, fun and good organization that made it the best when compared with other editions. While the memories of past Olympic legends likes of Haile Gebrselassie, Carl Lewis, Michael Johnson, Chris Hoy, Jackie Joyner-Kersee, Jesse Owens, Derartu Tulu, Jan Zelezny etc are fading in our hearts, this year event also produces record breakers and legends in the likes of Mo Farah, Michael Phelps, David Rudisha, Usain Bolt, etc. and also the young enterprising Yohan Blake remain a future global sprint focus. As Nigeria 2012 Olympic squad went back without any medal, it became an heartbroken scenario that the organizers through the British government, British Security Services and MI5 failed to allow our Boko Haram experts to participate in the bomb detonation event and also denied our lawmakers to participate in the usual money laundering and corruption scheme games ...
Mo Farah has won a second gold, he will go down not just as the greatest distance runner in British history but as one of the best the world has ever seen. Only six men have ever won the 5,000m and 10,000m double at one Olympic Games, and each of them has a place in the annals of the sport, from Hannes Kolehmainen in 1912, to Emil Zatopek and Vladimir Kuts in the 1950s, on through Lasse Viren and Miruts Yifter in the 1970s and 80s. Since then only Farah's great rival Kenenisa Bekele has done it, in 2008. What really gives an idea of just how hard it is to do, though, is the list of great runners who tried and failed. It was too tough for both the Flying Finn Paavo Nurmi and Haile Gebrselassie. It will come down to how much Farah wants to win. At the World Championships in 2011 he did manage to win medals in both events, which, again, were only a week apart. But then he had finished second in the 10,000m and was desperately hungry to win a first world title in the shorter race. That motivation undoubtedly ...
Past Olympic Moments: The sprint for the line in the Sydney Olympics 10,000m was the defining moment of one of sport's greatest rivalries: Haile Gebrselassie vs. Paul Tergat
Cant believe Haile Gebrselassie is still running! One of my fav athletes
Haile Gebrselassie started the wining streak in 10,000 meters ( Atlanta 1996) he did it again in Sydney (2000) .Then came Kenenisa Bekele he won it twice Athens (2004)&Beijing(2008).we lost the gold medal today after 4 Olympics.this gloomy feeling will not go away easily .

Love Kenenisa Bekele just slightly less than the great Haile Gebrselassie. Still, c'mon Mo Farah
I reckon you could smash the 10k. Matt 'Haile Gebrselassie' Moss
I miss Haile Gebrselassie he was always smiling, was a shame he didn't get picked for the Ethiopian team this year
The race would come down to Mo Farah & Kenenisa Bekele,but even the legend Haile Gebrselassie believes Mo Farah would come out with the gold
Kenenisa when asked about reason for taking up this sport: "When I saw Haile [Gebrselassie] running, I thought that perhaps one day I could be like him." "Haile made me want to run," he said. "After I see him win the Atlanta Olympics in 1996. I was 14 and I watch him on television".
Haile Gebrselassie will leave you breathless, Usain Bolt will take your breath away.:-)
