Ethiopia’s long distance runner Haile Gebrselassie, left, and British long-distance runner and marathon world record-holder Paula Radcliffe, react after crossing the finish line at the Vienna city half marathon, in downtown Vienna, Austria, on Sunday, April 15, 2012. Haile Gebrselassie won a special half-marathon event ahead of the Vienna City Marathon Sunday after chasing and overtaking Paula Radcliffe, who started the race 7 minutes, 52 seconds earlier. The Ethiopian great overtook Radcliffe after 15.3 kilometers (9.5 miles) and finished in an unofficial time of 1 hour, 52 seconds. Radcliffe, who timed 1:12:03, planned to use the exhibition event as preparation for the Olympics in London in August but saw her training interrupted by bronchitis over the past two weeks.
