1- Haile Gebrselassie 

He is one of the greatest distance runners of all time. What he achieved in the sport is a great source of inspiration for all the aspiring athletes. His incredible career achievements include world records in thirteen different competitions, with 4:52.86 in 2000m (1998) and the 2:03:59 at the 2008 Berlin Marathon perhaps his greatest of all.

 In a sport that is ruled by young athletes, it is unbelievable that Haile's marathon record is the third fastest of all time, and it's the best time achieved by an athlete over 35 years old. Seeing his incredible records and long career, he can easily be regarded as one of the greatest champions in the world of distance running.

2- Paavo Nurmi 

Paavo Nurmi will always remain as one of the biggest names in the world of distance running. He claimed an incredible 453 races in his career. It looks that no other athlete could come even close to matching his undefeated streak for 121 consecutive races over 800m. It wouldn't be wrong to call him the Floyd Mayweather of distance running, for he never suffered a defeat in a cross country race or the 10,000 meters. 

The great athlete started following a very strict training program even from a very early age, and he got to work on his skills further when he joined the Finnish military. In the history of distance running, Nurmi's name will always continue to shine. 

3- Emil Zatopek

Emil Zatopek, who was nicknamed the 'Czech Locomotive', is one of the greatest names in distance running. The great athlete claimed three gold medals at the 1952 Summer Olympics. 

After winning the 5,000 metres and 10,000 metres runs, Zatopek decided at the last minute to take part in the first marathon of his life and hence he won his third gold medal at the 1952 Summer Olympics.
