Kenenisa Bekele, the world record holder at 5,000 meters and 10,000 meters, will be debuting over the marathon this coming April at the Paris Marathon. This concludes an epic battle between Paris and London marathons. The amount of money that Mr. Bekele is making for his debut has to be, well monumental.
How fast will Bekele run in his debut? It should prove to be interesting. Renato Canova recently told media that Bekele's final time depends on which Bekele shows up: "the 26.20 Bekele or the 27 minute Bekele".
