Haile Gebrselassie revolutionized the world of long-distance running over the last decade. His world records stagger the imagination. He won two Olympic 10,000m golds, eight world and indoor championships; and set 17 world records over four different distances. Now he seeks a third gold medal over 10,000m in Athens. His biography is fascinating, detailing his early life in war-torn Ethiopia, and his rise to godlike status in the track world. The book will release immediately after the 2004 Olympics, with the last chapter covering his final race.
