Synopsis

The author of this book has been meeting up with the world's best marathon runner since 2005, following his world record runs at first hand and visiting him several times in Addis Abeaba. He has traced his background, travelled the length and breadth of the African highlands, unearthed interesting Ethiopian running stories and with Haile Gebrselassie's help, got a school project in a remote village off the ground. We discover the life story of a wonder runner from his childhood onwards; we relive his two Olympic 10K victories as well as his Berlin Marathon world records. The life story of this exceptional, perennially smiling athlete is packed with training information, personal encounters and impressions from his beloved homeland that he represents all over the world as UN honorary ambassador.
