The Greatest - Buch des/über Haile Gebrselassie

Mit 38 Fotos, allen Ergebnissen und einer Inside-Story aus Athen

2004, mit Anhängen, die alle Hailes Rennen beschreiben, inklusive

Olympischen Spielen und Weltmeisterschaften.

Two Olympic 10,000m golds; eight world championships indoors and outdoors;

seventeen world records over four different distances; a fifty-four race

winning streak — Haile Gebrselassie utterly dominated a decade of

distance running. The Greatest is his authorized biography, written by Jim

Denison, who worked on it with Haile for over two years, visited him in

Ethiopia, and traveled with him on the European track circuit.

"5" />Haile’s life story is fascinating, detailing his early years of

hard poverty in war-torn Ethiopia, his relentless training, his rise to godlike

status in the track world, and the good works he has done for his country with

his fame and fortune. Most of all it is a glimpse of the kind, fascinating man

behind all the records and medals.

Watch him closely, because in 2005 he will attempt to break the

world records in both the half-marathon and the marathon!

“Haile Gebrselassie is the best distance runner I have seen in the

last quarter-century, the most electrifying personality, and somewhat of an

enigma, given his Ethiopian roots. With this wonderful book, Jim Denison allows

the whole world to learn more about Haile The Great, a distance-running star

whose brilliance won’t soon be forgotten.”

— Amby Burfoot, executive editor, Runner’s World, and 1968 Boston

Marathon winner

“Be in no doubt Haile is the greatest distance runner the world has

ever seen.”

—Dave Bedford, former 10,000m world record holder, and race director for

the London Marathon

“Haile is an elegant champion and a fine example of

sportsmanship.”

—Lasse Viren, Olympic double-gold medalist

“In my view Haile is the greatest distance runner of all time and a

fantastic testimony to his legacy is that the man who is going to challenge for

that title ‘the greatest’ has been nurtured by Haile and his coach,

Dr. Wolde-Meskel Kostre. Haile has taken care of the present and he is passing

on the baton to the future, to one of his pupils, Kenenisa Bekele.”

—Brendan Foster, MBE, 1976 Olympic bronze medalist 10,000m, former world

record holder 3000m, and presently Track and Field Commentator for the BBC

“Haile’s accomplishment is a class act on and off the track. He

is not only admired for his running, but his universal smile (whether he wins

or finishes second).”

—Mebrahtom “Meb” Kheflezighi, two-time Olympian and American

record holder for 10,000m

“Haile Gebrselassie has won many great victories as an African

athlete. He is a great ambassador for his people, and through his numerous

humanitarian and charitable works a vitally important citizen for the future

growth and development of Africa.”

—Nelson Mandela
