Kenenisa Bekele After Winning Berlin: "I believe the selectors understand now why I complained at the time at not being selected. I’ve proved what I can do..."

Bekele's manager Jos Hermens on why he thinks Bekele could still be going strong for the 2020 Games: "I see a career as being like a candle which, of course, at some stage goes out. But in recent years Kenenisa’s has not been burning much.”
