Haile has run his last run!

And just like that Haile is done.





“I never think about retiring. For the first time, this is the day. Let me stop and do other work after this. Let me do other jobs. Let me give a chance for the youngsters.”


Haile has always been a class act and he will be missed in the running world. But for us Ethiopians, Haile is more than a great runner. He is a positive leader that has infused positive energy into the Ethiopian psyche. He showed us what is possible and declared "Yechalal" (it is possible). As Haile moves on to new goals we can look forward to great thing to come Ethiopia's way.

I was shocked and saddened to learn Haile's decision to retire from athletics. Haile is the most versatile and consistent athlete who competed at the highest level for nearly two decades. He has achieved a great deal and made us proud. I sincerely believe that he had a lot to offer yet. His earlier indications to compete until at least 2012 Olympics is for me a realistic one. I think he made a rash decision after an injury forced him to drop out from New York Marathon. I hope his manager and other important people around him will persuade him to reconsider his decision. I heard Brenda Foster on BBC saying that he will certainly make phone calls to Haile in the coming days. Haile did come back from injuries notably in 1998 and after he dropped out from London Marathon. He could overcome his latest injury and win an Olympic Gold.

For me: First it was Abebe, then Mamo, then Miruts, and then Haile! Thanks to all of you for the inspiration! You are/will be missed...
