Instagram photo by somosrunners(ENGLISH): HAILE GEBRSELASSIE AND KENYA'S PAUL TERGAT: TWO OF THE BEST THE WORLD HAS EVER SEEN In one of the greatest 10,000m races in Olympic history, Ethiopian Haile Gebrselassie wins gold by a fingertip, defending his Olympic title from Atlanta. With a few meters to go, Gebrselassie powers to the finish line surpassing Kenya's Paul Tergat in the last seconds of the race, winning by just 0.09 seconds. With this win, Gebrselassie becomes the 3rd person to defend a 10,000m title. Paul Tergat was one of the stars of long-distance and cross-country running in the 1990s and early 2000s. In additional to winning five consecutive cross-country world titles in the second half of the nineties, he also held world records in the 10,000m (with a time of 27:26.25, set in Brussels on 22 August 1997), the marathon (2:04.55 in Berlin in 2003) and the half marathon (59:17 in Milan in 1998). As if that were not enough, he won two Olympic 10,000m silver medals – finishing behind Haile Gebrselassie at Atlanta 1996 and Sydney 2000 – and two world championship silvers over the same distance in Athens in 1997 and Seville in 1999. "When I lost I know that I lost to a better guy who has trained better than me, and I didn’t feel bad. The only thing is that losing an Olympic gold medal by 100ths of a second was so painful at the end, but again that’s how sport is, and Haile is a very good friend of mine." • ℹ️ En 🇪🇸 ESPAÑOL:⬇️abajo en los comentarios. • #somosrunners #run #runner #runners #running #runstrong #athletics #atletismo #correr #corredor #corredores #crosscountry #xc #justdoit #maraton #marathon #marathontraining #sofast #trailrunning #track #trackandfield #athleticshistory #runninghistory #runninglegends #jjoo #olympicgames #sydney2000 #10000m #hailegebrselassie #paultergat
