All Hail Haile!
Are there any more doubts that this man is the greatest distance runner ever? 23 world records and now perhaps the sweetest one - 2:04.26. After knocking off 150-mile weeks, Haile shaved off 29 seconds off the previous best set on the same fast Berlin course by his long-time rival and friend Paul Tergat, to whom he apologised. Read about it here and here. I count myself fortunate to have lived in the same era of these 2 fantastic athletes. I'm lost for words and for fear of rambling and spoiling the occassion, I shall stop here (insert kow-tow action here).
