Born to Run
The Ethiopian runner, Haile Gebreselassie, the “Emperor”, is probably the greatest athlete of all time. He has won two Olympic titles, seven world titles and has broken numerous world records at 5,000 and 10,000 metres. A Sunday Times journalist went to interview him at his home in Addis Ababa.
Haile’s routine has not changed since he became an athlete. Every morning he gets up at 5.45 and runs for two hours. He has a nap after lunch and then goes out running again.
Haile was brought up in a very poor family. Although today he is a multi-millionaire he has never been comfortable being a rich man in such a poor country. “The thing which really offends me”, he says/ “is that the most important value in the 21st century is how much money you have.”
In the future, when he retires from athletics, Haile may go into politics. “I want to do something to help the people of Ethiopia. I have travelled to many countries. I have experience and I want to share that experience.” What Haile can’t understand why Europe is so rich and Ethiopia is so poor. “I was in Germany a week ago and it was freezing! Minus five. We have a much better climate. But we don’t have enough water and so we don’t have enough food and there are too many people.”
As we drive through the city in his ten-year-old Mercedes everyone recognizes him and shouts his name. A lorry carrying soldiers waits to let us pass. “Even the army are your fans/” I say. “No,” replies Haile. “That was because there is a white man sitting in the front seat of the car with me.”

a Read the article and mark the sentences T (true), F (false), or DS (doesn’t say).
1. Haile Gebreselassie is a long-distance runner.
2. He runs twice a day.
3. He enjoys being rich.
4. His family are also very rich.
5. He can’t understand why Europe is richer than his country.
6. The soldiers stop because Haile is famous.

b Find a word or phrase in the article which means:
1. a short sleep (paragraph 1)
2. looked after when he was young (paragraph 2)
3. give something you have to other people too (paragraph 3)
4. very cold (paragraph 3)
5. calls in a loud voice (paragraph 4)

a Can you … ? Yes (+).
(  ) talk about why you like / don’t like the weekend
(  ) talk about your lifestyle (food, exercise, etc.)
(  ) talk about your typical morning

b Tell about food you like / don’t like.
