Haile Gebrselassie, first athlete to run a sub-2:04 Marathon "Richard's achievements as a world-class distance runner speak for themselves. His success came from a meticulous approach to training and from knowing how to get the best out of himself in his races."

I can still remember training with Richard when I was a young athlete. He used to run so fast! But he also taught me that you can't get where you want to overnight. Years later when I went out to Ethiopia, Richard welcomed me into his home and gave me a lot more encouragement. I have always looked up to him and really admire the way he wants to help others achieve their goals. * Mo Farah, reigning 5,000m world champion *
