Inside Ethiopian Running

Haile Gebrselassie, Keninisa Bekele, Meseret Defar and Tirunesh Dibaba appear in a short film about Ethiopian running

Talking ahead of this year’s Bupa Great North Run, which was won by Kenenisa Bekele ahead of Britain’s Mo Farah and Haile Gebrselassie, some of the greatest athletes of all time spoke for a short film about Ethiopian running.

Shot in Adis Ababa, Bekele is featured along with Gebrselassie, Tirunesh Dibaba and Meseret Defar as the athletes explain what it means to win a gold medal in Ethiopia and what it takes to be the best in the world.
