Haile Gebreselassie is a famous long distance running champion. Born in Arsi Province, Ethiopia in 1973, Haile had 9 siblings and their family lived in financially deprived conditions. He was forced to run 10 kms to school every morning and back the same distance in the evening.
Regardless of being asthmatic, he was so fast that his friends could never catch up. Soon, his gift was spotted and he was asked to try out for the Ethiopian national athletics team. So, without formal training the boy was able to run faster than his trained teammates.
He went on to win two Olympic gold medals at the 10,000m distance and he won the Berlin Marathon for a record four times. He won the Dubai Marathon three straight times.
He is an inspirational man who overcame many trials to become the legend he is today. With a success story like Haile’s it is no wonder why he is so prosperous in the business world as well.
