Haile Gebrselassie

At the Sydney Olympics in 2000, the Ethiopian distance-runner, Haile Gebrselassie, entered athletics history by successfully defending his 10,000 metre title.

Gebrselassie defeated his greatest rival in one of the narrowest victories ever in the event.

He recalls the race for Sporting Witness.
