YHAILE GEBRSELASSIE, of Ethiopia, holder of the men's marathon world record or 2 hours 3 minutes and 59 seconds – that's like running a sub- fi ve- minute mile 26 times in a row. YUS ironman triathlete MARK ALLEN won the famous Hawaii ironman triathlon six times. The event involves swimming 2.4 miles, cycling 112 miles and then running a marathon. Elite ironman triathletes can do the whole lot in under nine hours. YJamaica's USAIN " LIGHTNING" BOLT broke the world 100m record at the 2008 Olympic Games – despite slowing down near the line, and having one of his shoelaces undone.
