Haile Gebrselassie - You Ask the Questions

In his staggering career, 36-year-old Haile Gebrselassie has dominated the world of running with success in track, cross-country and on the road. Gebrselassie's remarkable career started at 15, when he ran his first marathon in Addis Ababa wearing street shoes - and pulled off a time of 2:48.

The supremely versatile Ethiopian has since conquered distances from 1500m to the marathon and has notched up 27 world records as well as a huge haul of World Championship medals. Gebrselassie also has two Olympic golds (10,000m at Athens and Sydney) and has twice been Men's Track and Field Athlete of the Year. After leaving the track behind, he decided to focus on the marathon and has been recording stunning times ever since. In 2008's Berlin Marathon, Gebrselassie beat his own world record by 27 seconds to become the first man to dip under 2:04.
