A Great Champion Retires

Haile Gebrelassie announced his retirement after dropping out of the New York City Marathon last week.  Haile pulled out of the race at mile 16 with a knee injury.  He is the first and only person to smash the 2 hour, four minute barrier.  If you have ever run a marathon you must watch this video.  Bring your hankies... it's a sad one.
