Two-time Olympic 10,000-meter champion Haile Gebrselassie broke the world one-hour and 20-kilometer marks at the Golden Spike Grand Prix athletics meeting on Wednesday. The 34-year-old Ethiopian ran 21.285 kilometers in 60 minutes to surpass Mexican Arturo Barrios's previous mark of 21.101 kilometers, set in La Fleche, France, on March 30, 1991. On the way, he also broke the 20-kilometer world mark of 56 minutes, 55.60 seconds, set by Barrios during his run in 1991. Gebrselassie clocked 56:25.98. (WCSN, WCSN.com)
