    After doubling during the world cross championships in the last several years, Kenenisa Bekele seems to be planning a 10,000-5000 double in Athens. Today in Hengelo, NED, he delivered the first warning to his competators: in 12:37.35 he broke the six year old world record from his compatriot Haile Gebrselassie by more than two seconds (12:39.36).

    At the same meet, Geb finished second to fellow Ethiopian Sihine, 26:39.69 to 26:41.58 and Alan Webb ran 3:33.70 in the 1500.
