    LONDON (Reuters) – Twice Olympic 10,000 metres champion Haile Gebrselassie will attempt the 16-year-old world one-hour record this year after making a surprise return to the track in the Dutch town of Hengelo last month.

    The 34-year-old Ethiopian retired from track running to concentrate on the marathon after finishing fifth in the 2004 Athens Olympics 10,000 metres final.

    In Hengelo he again finished fifth in 26 minutes 52.81 seconds, the eighth time he has clocked under 27 minutes.
