Haile Wins 2010 Dubai Marathon

Posted on January 22, 2010


Haile Gebrselassie Wins 2010 Standard Chartered Dubai Marathon in 2:06:09

A sore back. A hard fought victory just 24 seconds ahead of the runner-up Chala. Not a record breaking time. And the $1 Million? It stays in the bank for now.

But above those news, it was Haile’s winner attitude that amazes and shines. In the press story, Haile was reported saying, “I slept in an awkward position and didn’t feel right for the first 15km. By the half way stage I just wanted to win the race – the spectators at the finish are amazing and I knew that if Haile Gebrselassie were not on the podium it would be a big shock for them!”

A winner attitude that’s worthy of a million round of applause!
