  • Who am I (no. 5175)

    I am the only athlete to have won world titles in outdoor and indoor track, road running and XC.

      Nope - she has neither XC nor road running titles to her credit.

          Indeed, it is she.
          It was a bit of a trick question, since her only world titles in XC were in the team event (in 1997 and 2000). Apart from that, she won two world titles on roads - in half-marathon (2002) and road relay (1996), one indoors (3000 meters in 2003) and one outdoors (10000 meters in 2003). Great range as well...

            Didn't Gebresellasie win a World Half Marathon title. I believe that he's won at least one World XC title (either as a Junior or as a Team), and of course he's won Indoors and Out.

              Yes he did in 2001, with a run of 60:03

                Geb has not won any international XC titles. He got 2nd in '92 to Kirui in the junior race, and placed 4th a couple times ('95 for sure and probably '96 also) in the senior race. It's the only surface he was never able to fully conquer.
