Addis Ababa, Ethiopia – Ethiopia’s former two-time Olympic and four-time World 10,000m champion Haile Gebrselassie will continue his impressive season when he takes part in the 60th Fukuoka International Marathon on 3 December 2006.
The 33-year old, who ran a world lead and a national record of 2:05.56 to win the Berlin Marathon in September, will be taking part in the fifth marathon of his career.
“I just want to be run and win in Fukuoka,” he said. “I will not be attempting a personal best or a World record. I will just race to win.”
