Haile Gebrselassie
They're calling him the greatest distance runner ever.

Haile Gebrselassie broke the world record for the 20k and half marathon last Sunday in Tempe, Arizona. His time of 58:55 shattered the old mark by 21 seconds. It's the 20th time he has set a world record. The 32 year old Gebrsalassie has two Olympic gold medals for the 10k in 1996 and 2000, as well as 4 world championships golds, and 3 golds in world indoor championships. He is preparing for the 2008 Olympic marathon.

Hey, he's even got a movie out.
