Kenenisa Bekele graces the cover of Athletics 2010 after his unique 5000m/10,000m double at the World Championships in Berlin. While sprinter Usain Bolt, the cover man of 2009, filled up most of the column inches with his world records at 100m and 200m, Bekele’s double was as fine an athletics achievement. He showed he is the greatest distance runner of all-time.
Athletics 2010 is the yearbook of the Association of Track & Field Statisticians and has been published every year since 1951 – a year after the organisation was founded.
Once again this book is essential reading for all enthusiasts of track and field.
