Haile Gebrselassie, considered one of athletics' greatest distance runners, said Sunday he was retiring from competitive running.The Ethiopian's longtime manager at first said it was not the end of Gebrselassie's career, but later issued a press release saying the runner had retired from athletics.Gebrselassie had tearfully retired five years ago after knee problems forced him to drop out of the New York City Marathon.The soft-spoken Gebrselassie achieved success both on the track and the roads during his long career.Nearly unbeatable on the track in his prime, he won his first of eight indoor and outdoor world championships at Stuttgart in 1993 and went on to hold world records from the 5,000-meter to the marathon.
