Prince of Asturias Award for Sports 2011

“It is an honour to receive this Award from the hands of the Prince of Asturias, heir to the throne of Spain, and to form part of the prestigious list of laureates that have received this Award in the past.

I consider this lofty distinction to be a tribute not only to my career, but to that of all the athletes from my country and from Africa”.

Haile Gebrselassie
Addis Ababa, 2nd September 2011

“Congratulations to Haile Gebrselassie for the Prince of Asturias Award. He is, without a doubt, one of the greatest athletes of all time”.
