Mo Farah beaten by Kenenisa Bekele in Great North Run thriller

Ethiopia’s Kenenisa Bekele saw off double world and Olympic champion Mo Farah’s late surge to win the Great North Run in a thrilling sprint finish.

Farah chased down Bekele in the final 400m to set up a nail-biting finale but the Briton had to settle for second.

Another Ethiopian, Haile Gerselassie, was a distant third after falling behind in the last of the 13.1 miles.
Great runEarlier, MO FARAH has been warned he faces a record-breaking war to be regarded as the best distance runner of all time.

Farah has Ethiopian Kenenisa Bekele to beat in the BUPA Great North Run tomorrow and it will not be the last time they meet each other in epic battles.Bekele, 31, has been recovering from injuries while Farah has been dominating on the track with his Olympic and world championship golden double. But Bekele still leads Farah with eight Olympic and world titles to Farah’s five, and Bekele holds both the 10,000m and 5,000m world records.
“Farah will be a big rival of mine for many years,” said Bekele. “He is a great athlete, but when I am fit, I think I am the best.”Haile Gebrselassie completes a star-studded field for the half-marathon and Farah said: “It will be a special race.”

 

Kenya’s Priscah Jeptoo came close to breaking the course record as she ran magnificently to win the women’s race.

Jeptoo, this year’s London marathon winner and the reigning Olympic marathon silver medallist, clocked a time only five seconds slower than the 65 minutes 40 seconds which was recorded 10 years ago by Britain’s Paula Radcliffe.

Defending champion Tirunesh Dibaba broke the Ethiopian record as she crossed the line behind Jeptoo in 66.09 but ahead of compatriot Meseret Defar, the reigning world and Olympic champion over 5,000m.

 

To his left, the mighty Kenenisa Bekele was saluting him as the best runner in the world; to his right, the icon Haile Gebrselassie was suggesting our Mo was already every bit as great as him.

    xxxቀነኒሳ አንበሳ ሁለቴ አገሳ!!!xxx

    ዛሬም እያጋሳ፣
    ከኢትዮጵያ ተነሳ።
    ፈረንጅ አገር ማዶ፤
    “ሞ ፋራን” አሳዶ፤
    በመጋቢው ፈርዶ፤
    ባገሩ ጎርምዶ፤አንክቶ እያጋሳ፤
    ሁለቱንም በላ፥ቀነኒሳ አንበሳ።
    ጉድ አለ ኢትዮጵያዊ፣
    ጭካኔውን ኣይቶ፤
    ቀነኒሳ አንበሳ መጋቢውን በልቶ፤
    በፈረንጅ አገርም፥
    እንዲያ ሕዝቡ ጓጒቶ
    “ሞ ፋራን” በሩጫ ሳቀበት ዘርግቶ።
    አንክቶ ጎርምዶ፤
    ዃጒ አያለ እያጋሳ፤
    ሁለቱንም በላ፥
    ቀነኒሳ አንበሳ።
    በአገር ቤት እንዝሕላል፣
    አይወድም አንበሳ፤
    በውጭ አገር ደግሞ፣
    ነግሷል ቀነኒሳ።
    እንደውም ፈረንጆች፣
    በዓለም ላይ ሲያወሩት፤
    ንጉሱ’ኮ መጣ፣
    ብለው ነው የጠሩት።
    ውሸቴን አይደለም፣
    ኃይሌም ጎኔ ነበር፤
    “ሞ ፋራም”አይዋሽም፣
    ወርቁን ለመመስከር።
    እናም…
    ይኸውላችሁ፣
    ዳግም ላይረሳ፤
    በመብላት ድል ነሳ፣
    ቀነኒሳ አንበሳ።
    የኢትዮጵያ አርማ፣
    ግርማ ሞገስ ያለው፤
    የጥቁር አንበሳ፣
    ትዕግስት የታደለው፤
    የነጻነታችን የሰንደቅ ዓላማ
    ጠባቂ ነው አንበሳ
    ጠላት እያደማ።
    እንደቀነኒሳ፣
    አጋዚን ቢያውቀውም፤-
    ያ ቀን የመጣ ዕለት፣
    ፍፁም አይምረውም።
    እናም
    ያጥቁር አንበሳ፣
    እንደቀነኒሳ:-
    ይባ-ላል ሳይሳሳ፤
    ላይምር እያጋሳ።
    ጥቁሩ አንበሳ…..
    ቀነኒሳ አንበሳ
    ሁለቴ አገሳ!!!።

    I truly have a tendency to go along with all the things that
    ended up being composed within “The King
    is back! Kenenisa beats Mo Farah in Great North Run (Video) | Ethiopian Media Forum (EMF)”.

    Thank you for all of the actual info.Regards,Lee
