ADDIS ABABA (ETH): Haile Gebrselassie has said Kenenisa Bekele would have been his first choice if he was in charge of selecting the Ethiopian marathon team, informs AFP. “If I was on the selection committee my first choice would be Kenenisa. An athlete like Kenenisa, it doesn’t matter if he wins or not. Morally his presence means a lot for the rest of the group. That’s why I wish to see him in Rio,” he said.
