He won the gold medal in the 10,000 m and the silver in the 5,000 m at the 2004 Athens Olympics. The ceremony for the lighting of the flame is arranged as a pagan pageant, with priestesses dancing. ...


In 2004 August 20, in the 10,000 m final, three Ethiopians attempted to duplicate their 2003 World Championships sweep. Since Haile Gebrselassie had been suffering from inflammation on his Achilles tendon for five weeks before he came to Athens, Bekele and Sileshi Sihine slowed the race down to give him a chance of a medal, putting their own victory in jeopardy. However Gebrselassie was dropped as Bekele and Sihine upped the pace to shake off other leading competetors, Zersenay Tadese and Boniface Kiprop. Bekele let Sihine lead him out and then hit the front with 500 m to go, sprinting away with the last lap in 53.02 seconds and won the race with a new Olympics record 27:05.10.

Eight days later, in 2004 August 28, in the 5000 m final, Bekele confronted Hicham El Guerrouj, the 1500 m Olympics winner, and Eliud Kipchoge, the 5000 m World champion. At the 5000 m of 2003 World Championships of the previous year, Kipchoge, El Guerrouj and Bekele were the gold, silver and bronze medalists respectively. Even though Bekele was holding the 5000 m world record, at the Olympics he finished 2nd, being kicked down by El Guerrouj with 50 m to go and barely failed to win the Olympics 5000m/10000m double. El Guerrouj won a double over 1500 m and 5000 m.

Afterwards a Ethiopian singer song writer Teddy Afro released a famous misic video, Tarik Teserra ("History was Made"), in honor of world record holder and 2004 Olympic gold medalist, Kenenisa Bekele. [5] Bekele ended the year ranked as 2004 Man of the year by Track & Field News magazine: he had broken the indoor world record for 5,000 meters (12:49.60), the outdoor world record for 5,000 meters (12:37.35), won both the short course (4k) and long course (12K) races for the third year in a row at the IAAF World Cross Country Championships, broken the world record for 10,000 meters (26:20.31), and broken the Olympic record in winning the gold medal in the men's 10,000 meters (27:05.10), while also winning two 3,000 meter races and the Ethiopian Championship for 5,000 meters for good measure. (Interestingly, every world and Olympic record Bekele broke this year had been set by Haile Gebrselassie.)

After Olympics

On January 4, 2005, Bekele's fiancee, 18-year-old Alem Techale, died of an apparent heart attack while on a training run with him. Although it was initially stated that no autopsy was performed, Techale and Bekele's manager, Jos Hermens, later said that an autopsy had revealed nothing conclusive about the young woman's death. She was the 2003 World Youth Champion in the 1500 m and in excellent physical condition. The mystery surrounding her death has raised suspicion about the possible use of EPO or other performance-enhancing drugs by Techale and perhaps other athletes in Hermens' care. However, Kenenisa has never been implicated and there is no evidence other than his otherworldly times and association with Hermens himself to suggest that he uses undetectable performance-enhancing drugs.

Over the next several weeks following Alem's death, Kenenisa grieved. He resumed racing on January 29, and lost over 3,000 m to South-African Irishman Alistair Cragg. A few weeks later he lost to fellow Ethiopian Markos Geneti over 2 miles. In March, Kenenisa faced his toughest challenge yet. Despite his grief and recent losses on the track, he lined up to defend his long and short course titles at the 2005 IAAF World Cross Country Championships. In dramatic fashion, Kenenisa bested the field in the short course despite a fast pace set by Qatari Saif Saaeed Shaheen. He followed that win with a long course victory the next day over Eritrean Zersenay Tadese and Kenyan rival Eliud Kipchoge. The 2005 World Cross Country double victory is considered by many to be the most amazing of Kenenisa's career to date. And while this victory was just one step toward healing his broken spirit, it is among the greatest emotional and physical triumphs in Athletics history.

In 2005 August 26, Bekele set the current 10,000 m world record 26:17.53 at the 29th Memorial Van Damme meeting – TDK Golden League – in Brussels, Belgium, slicing nearly 3 seconds off his previous world record 26:20.31, and running with 5,000 m halves of 13:09 and 13:08. [7] [8] At the end of 2005 Bekele was voted the Track & Field News magazine athlete of the year for the second year in a row.

In 2006 he won five out of six Golden League events (5,000 m) in the same season, which earned him a total of $83,333. The IAAF Golden League is an annual series of athletics meetings organised by the International Association of Athletics Federations. ...


On 17th February 2007, he broke the indoor world record over 2000 m in Birmingham, UK, with a time of 4:49.99. His spectacular final 300 m aided this time which would be considered excellent even outdoors.


On March 24, 2007, however, his remarkable racing streak of 27 consecutive victories in cross country races (dating back to his last previous loss in December of 2001) came to an end when after leading the race on the next to last lap of the 2007 IAAF World Cross Country Championships in Mombasa, Kenya he succumbed to the very hot, humid conditions (which caused more than 1/6th of all competitors to drop out) and was passed by eventual winner Zersenay Tadese on the last lap before Bekele dropped out. This was greeted with cheers by the Kenyan crowds, an occurrence which has been frowned upon by the wider athletics community.

During that race, he looked like he was going to be dropped several times over the last 800 meters but recovered to scream by Sihine with 150 meters to go and take his third straight world title.
