Quote Of The Day
“I felt good throughout the race and then with about 400 metres remaining I became boxed in. I had to use a lot of energy to get to the front … That last 100 metres for me felt like I still had another 400 metres to go because I had already kicked and put so much effort in. … I came to win, but it did not work out the way I had hoped. It was hard to accept losing by just 0.09. Maybe if I had competed in the 100m dash rather than the 10,000m it might have been easier to accept. Yet I was satisfied. I wished Haile [Gebrselassie] all the best and told him that I’d be moving up to the marathon. Haile and I became great friends. We still are today. After Sydney and the end of my track career, I actually became a better person and a better athlete. It was a defining moment for me.”
