    Prague, Czech Republic – The first athlete who surpassed 20km in a One Hour track race was the legendary Czech Emil Zatopek back in 1951, so it is appropriate that another attempt will be held in the Czech Republic.

    Another running legend Haile Gebrselassie from Ethiopia feels in the shape and will make his second career attempt at the World record when he runs at 46th Golden Spike, a Grand Prix status meeting as part of the IAAF World Athletics Tour 2007, in Ostrava, Czech Republic on 27 June.

    The Emil Zatopek Memorial race will be the 5000m, with the One Hour assault being held in the pre-programme and provisionally scheduled for 18.20-19.20hrs.
