A Legend Hangs 'Em Up
“I am retiring from competitive running, not from running. You cannot stop running, this is my life. And I am still enjoying my farewell tour like today in Manchester.”
“I want to thank all my fans, friends, competitors and main sponsor adidas for their support and for all they did for me. I have had 23 incredible years in athletics on the elite level! Looking forward to stay involved as a running ambassador and promote running around the world.”
– Haile Gebrselassie announcing his retirement from competitive running after finishing 16th in 30:05 at the Great Manchester Run 10K.
