Gebrselassie Runs 2hr 05:29 in a Downpour

Gebrselassie's winning time of 2hr 5min 29sec was still the eighth fastest in history, and the fourth fastest he has ever run, but it was well outside the world mark of 2hr 3min 59sec he set in Berlin last September. He did at least have the consolation of a £170,000 first prize.

MY COMMENT: Speculation is the world record would have been gone in better conditions.
