Subject: RE: Geb's Age
From the December 1995 issue of Track & Field News:
"He has had to struggle to reach the highest pinnancle of the sport, but at the age of '24 or 25, I think,' the smiling, delightful Gebreselassie, whose 'official' birthdate is listed as April 18, 1973, has established himself as one of distance running's all-time giants."
A couple of years ago, when Geb started to lose some races, Larry Rawson wrote an article about the subject, seeming to suggest that, although Geb was clearly older than indicated on his "official" birthdate, it had been advantageous to use that birthdate for purposes of junior competition.
