"Geb" is considered one of the nicest guys on the marathon tour, and has broken many records in the 5k, 10k, and marathon distance on his way to four world championships, two Olympic gold medals, and numerous wins. Those that say he is the best endurance runner to ever have lived now have one more piece of evidence. RunnersWeb has a bit about Geb's upbringing on their site.
