Fitness test - I am back!
Gebrselassie confirmed that he ran an easy race, as he wanted to test his fitness level after the operation and first period of renewed intense training: "I am sure that I could had ran much faster, but there was no reason to do so. I am training well again and just needed to find some reference in regards to my shape.

I am satisfied. This race confirmed my feeling. I am back!"
