Very interesting.

Wikipedia has already updated his profile.

Haile Gebrselassie (born April 18, 1973) is a long distance track and road running athlete born as one of ten children in Asella, Arsi Province, Ethiopia. He currently holds the marathon world record with a time of 2 hours 4 minutes 26 seconds and is considered by many to be one of the best distance runners of all time, having broken 24 world records and won numerous Olympic and World Championship titles.

Woah ... He has been running 10km distance since young to school and back home... Maybe we can start doing this and after 5 years, we should be able to reach sub 40mins for 10km... :tongue_smilie:

His 26 min for 10km is really sprinting !!! :hail: :hail:

hmmm i have a question...

how do we pronounce his name??

power!! he did a sub-1 hr half marathon before. his vision is to do a sub-2 hr marathon. looking forward for someone to achieve that in near future.

How to pronounce that? something like this:

Haile Gebrselassie = Hay Lee - Jeep bree Sir Lar See

Geb did a negatve split..WOW ! What an amazing feat!

Geb picked up $71,000 for the win and the same amount in a world record bonus. He also reportedly earned $357,000 in appearance money..WOW WOW !!

Can he repeat the same or better in Beijing Olympics 2008?

I reckon, these guys only pick the fast and/or prestigious marathons. Noakes says that the human body only can stand 3 very fast marathons (and I think Haile's race qualifies as very fast), so he will be wise to choose the races where he can make a buck as well.

Further on, negative splits are the way to run records (from the world record to ones very own PB). Many of the top runners split negative or even in their best runs. I think, it's a good advice to try that as well in the races we do.

Concering the olympics: Of course, it's all about winning there. Same for the NYC Marathon because the course is simply too demanding. If somebody breaks the world record in Athens I would simply say that guy is doped :rolleyes:

There is quite a bunch of professional runners at SCSM too, right? How much do they get for their start?

Cheers, alex

About one million spectators cheered on the Ethiopian in Berlin...But Geb would be disappointed with the mini crowd here if visible assuming SCSM can afford and is willing to pay him enough to parade in the event.

i can assured u guys, that if u like supporters on the side of the roads (estimated a million) and different kinds of bands (jazz, pop, rock or even hard rock and traditional music) making loud noise to cheer you up, fast timing, very good organisation and more, you should try berlin marathon!

where was i when haile reached the finish line? between 23 & 24 km i think.

anyway, he got 50.000 euro for winning and the exact amount for the new world record. he also received 250.000 euro as appearance fee. not bad for a slightly more than a 2 hours run, huh?

by the way, officially the slowest marathon runner ran a time of 6:52 hrs and inofficially a british guy had managed to come last after more than 12 hours (i still could not find the reason behind that timing). 11 of the last 50 female marathoners were germans, the rest were foreigners.

i ran at a "very slow" pace of 4:05 hours, that includes phototaking, partying the night before till 3 am (slept for abt 3 hours), stop for leg massage after 26 km point, long toilet visit in greek restaurant due to stomachache and chest pain for no apparent reason (had to stop several times).

OP - not prepared for the marathon at all!

ps : will be writing my fr soon

    • It probably started as a misunderstanding or misinterpretation  of the fact, but it has since escalated and the stakes have risen considerably.  My impression from reading the reports is the part of SRY's contention with Ashley's account was that it was put to him during media interview that he slowed to a crawl and that cost him a medal. Ashley did not clarify that during the media interview which perpetuates his act of sportsmanship.  That got him nominated for the Fairplay award which he won.  I don't think that SRY begrudged Ashley for the award. He just disagree that Ashley slowed down to a crawl and that cost him a medal. In his estimation, even if Ashley has really slowed down, it did not cost him a medal because his finishing time was a bit off from the medal timing.  SA probably slighted because they were the one who nominated Ashley for the award and raised the stake with its 'problem kid' to cease and desist. Of cos, SRY was never going to just roll over. And his further comments prompted Ashley to sue him for defamation. And here we are.  It all seems a little superfluous to me but of cos I'm not the one who feels he's been defamed. 
    • I think only Ashley himself really know if he did really purposely slow down or not.  While I admire SRY on his achievement and humility even as a champion, there could be chance he may have observed wrongly especially from a distance. Then this whole issue becomes just a misunderstanding.
    • 2022...that is, if there is none of  "Covid-20" pandemic aka Covid-19 Wave 2...  🙄
    • Hey Uncle thank you - Have moved the century to 2022 Yeah keep your virtual runs clean and green
    • glad of @Lady Ice to reply...looks like this SCSM Virtual edition, shall miss... Reminder to All, please Keep the SCSM Race Clean and Green... of course, first thing to pop up is ...how is your 100th marathon attempt...given if this is not a Covid-19 year, you should have completed your maiden Century mark? Virtual Race, in uncle's opinion, can never replace the Real Run experience, because it is always a designated route, motivated by fellow runners who form camaraderie for a common objective...finishing a race with betterment of their PB... Virtual Race has no element of DNF, no judgement, no supervised "officiating" from a standard "Virtual Race" Committee to verify if your "gps-logged activity" data submitted as evidence...of course uncle has mentioned...how best to to verify if the "participant entity" is on walk, run, bike, drive, train or plane mode...or if the person is really "virtual" and not the real person... lots of virtual mega ultra distance...2020 KM....produces lots of virtual mega ultra runners...wha...that's cool...how then to complete 2020 KM race... Cumulative...wait uncle got 58km (run) weekly...calculator please...34 weeks till 2020...let's see there are 52 weeks per year...aiyoh, should have signed up 1 Jan 2020...but if 2020 KM can be done with plane...Roundtrip London - Singapore - London...and how many hours of flight time....zzZZZZZ...still got hope...when GREEN LANE special opening for London-SG border...10 slots uncle "chopped" BUY...20210KM...of course, 1 slot of 2021KM Virtual Race reserved specially for @Lady Ice to complete her Century Marathon milestone...actually a package for 48 FM... eagerly waiting for next 2021 KM Virtual Race...how much RM 150...S$50...complete with everything...SOLD OUT, limited 10,000 Slots available...due to overwhelming demand...another 10,000 Slots...repeat 4 Quarters of 2021...lol...event organiser laughing to the bank...with virtual manpower to support...apps platform is "bot" actually... Yes, SCSM platform is a Base Training Platform..and if the SCSM Virtual "Grand Finale" shall be based on the apps...uncle would just treat this as another Challenging Training Session...can be repeated again (say 3 times)...best of all, there is never DNF...because you decide for yourself if you should want to DNF yourself...mostly, with personal pride...NO WAY! Just like if Virtual Race (Challenge 2021KM)...DNF....NO WAY!
