Gebrselassie clocks 2:05:29 in Dubai

It’s unbelievable that someone can run a marathon this fast, finishing in
torrential rain in the final stages – Read about it. He ran the first
half in 61:45.

    I was in Dubai when this race was run and can vouch for the horrendous and unusual rain storm which dumped on this race. Didn’t attend the race but kept up with pre-race comments and news stories prior to the race. G. stated he was aiming for a 62 minute half which I see he achieved so I’m sure the torrential rain was the cause of his not setting a new record on this course. There was lots of excitement in Dubai both leading up to and during this race.
