It is a disgrace for Bekele not to be on the list. If you look at the womens list Dibaba is on there, so it isn't like SI doesnt know about distance running, and you cant use the argument that it's because hes from africa because they are both Ethiopians. Bekele has 3 olympic golds, a silver, and what 11 world cross country championship golds, set various world records, and is very rarely beaten. He is simply the most dominating athlete next to phelps and Lance. They freakin have O'Neil on the list. SI is a joke. I have lost all respect for them..they should just stick to swimsuit editions.
