"The Greatest" missed his world record

As I was 90% done with Haile Gebrselassie's biography, he has just won the richest marathon of the world.....missing his world record by less than half a minute:

The 34-year-old Ethiopian won in 2 hours, 4 minutes, 53 seconds for the second-fastest time ever. But he was 28 seconds from setting his 25th world mark and collecting the US$1 million bonus (€684,000).

"The idea was to complete the first half in about 62 minutes, but I was almost half a minute too fast. I paid the price for that in the final stages of the race," said Gebrselassie, who collected US$250,000 (€171,000) in prize money.
