A Legend To Haile Is A Legend To Us
“Miruts has been everything to me and my athletics career. When I started running, I just wanted to be like him. He is the reason for who I’m now and for what I have achieved. I used to doubt that he was a human being after all for achieving what he achieved back then. For me, he is the best-ever athlete Ethiopia ever had after the great Abebe Bikila.”
– An emotional Haile Gebrselassie talking about the passing of Miruts Yifter¬†on Friday. Yifter ¬†was the double Olympic champion at 5,000 and 10,000 in 1980. Yifter also won an Olympic bronze in 1972 and was JAILED upon his return home.
