Sporting Greats: Haile Gebrselassie documentary

Here is a recently uploaded documentary from Australia on the great Ethiopian runner Haile Gebrselassie. His story has been told many times, but it is still fun to see some of his first major races such as when Joseph Machuka of Kenya hit Haile with his fist as Haile went sprinting by for a win or another sprint win against an angry Moses Tanui and his shoe. It is nice to hear Haile's inner voice and thoughts and to hear about his race tactics and injuries as he narrates the film.
