Gebreselassie finishes ahead of Tergat on his days on the tracks
One man Kenyan athletes love to hate is in town. Coming courtesy of G4S Group-local security and courier service company, he is in town to conduct running clinics for 3 days.
And he didn't even wait for a night with Kenyan media asking him about his record set for the marathon which he broke last year adding to the already heated rivalry between Tergat and himself. He's always said theirs is a friendly one but I'm sure younger athletes like Samuel Wanjiru, Robert Cheruiyot are listening.
It will be an interesting time to interact with the athlete and hear his point of view and also learn a few of his entrepreneurial skills which he has put into good use to help him secure a life after racing.
But from the look of things, retirement is not anywhere close. More details here.
