It Doesn’t Get Better Than This: Paul Tergat, Paula Radcliffe, Tegla Loroupe and Haile Gebrselassie All Together in One Room for NYRR Hall of Fame
October 30, 2015
New York, NY – It doesn’t get any better than this for distance fans. Haile Gebrselassie, Paul Tergat, Paula Radcliffe, and Tegla Loroupe were all in the same room as the four marathoner world record breakers were all inducted into the NYRR Hall of Fame on Thursday at a presentation in the incredible two story brand-new TCS New York City Marathon Pavilion (which is a temporary facility with glass that is at the finish at the marathon).
Must Watch/Read: We spent 10 minutes with Haile Gebrselassie where he talked about his career, how he still runs 90 miles a week in his retirement, and how he would beat Mo Farah. We have a separate article on our 10 minutes with Geb with video here.
Below we’ve got all the other Hall of Fame video including the brief induction speeches and the full press conference with Geb, Tergat, Radcliffe and Loroupe.
