Music and Sport: "The best music for running is hip-hop"


When Ethiopia runner, Haile Gebrselassie, recorded a 2000 meter world record in 1998, his favorite song went through loudspeakers and stadiums: he wished to sing Scatman John's "Scatman" technology. At the end he said: "The music gives me a rhythm that fits with my speed of recording." Even on the world's records later Gebrselassie was in the same song, and he adapted his speed to him.
