How many steps...

...does an athlete take when he runs a marathon?

An awful lot of them, I reckon!

This is
Ethiopian Haile Gebrselassie powering down the road during the 2006 Berlin Marathon which he eventually went on to win.

This past weekend he was there again, and this time he broke the record by stripping an amazing 13 minutes off the previous fastest time.

Berlin, Germany.


  1. Isn't he? It's also amazing to think that he's onloy been running marathons for less than 2 years or so!
