    Haile Gebrselassie has said he may withdraw from the marathon at this year's Beijing Olympics if the city's air pollution levels do not improve.

    The marathon world record holder missed last year's London Marathon because of a breathing problem.

    “If things are still heavily polluted I would try to run a different distance, instead of the marathon,” he said.

    Beijing, a poor choice
    The whole field will breathe that air
    First through last, bar none
