Haile Gebrselassie arrived to Beirut yesterday and performed a training run earlier today with this year’s peace runners, but I don’t think he will be running the Beirut Marathon tomorrow though. Gebrselassie is a true legend in the long-distance tracks and has won numerous Marathon races. Here’s what he said to LBCI about the marathon and running for peace.

See you all tomorrow at the Beirut Marathon!

I’ve already posted on several occasions about Felipe. He was quite impressive in GP2 earlier this year, drove for Williams at the Bahrain F1 GP and has been confirmed as one of Sauber’s drivers for the year 2015.

This is a great achievement for Felipe, now he has to impress in F1 and hopefully move to one of the top teams one day.

Sauber have announced that Brazil’s Felipe Nasr will drive for them in 2015, joining fellow new recruit Marcus Ericsson.
The signings mean that current drivers Adrian Sutil and Esteban Gutierez will leave Sauber at the end of the season.
Nasr, 22, has been a test and reserve driver for Williams this year while also participating in the GP2 series.
“This is an unforgettable moment that I owe to all of those who have supported me,” said Nasr.

The 2018 World Cup will take place in Russia and the logo is supposed to represent Russia’s heart & soul. I think it looks great specially when compared to the previous two World Cups logos. Now let’s wait and see what Qatar comes up with in few years time, assuming FIFA will allow them to still host the World Cup.

The Beirut Marathon Association has opened two extra days for registration for an exceptionally awesome lady, Sarah el Khatib. Sarah was at TEDxLAU this year and delivered an inspiring talk on her fight with cancer, before she died two weeks later. I will be at the Beirut Marathon this year just like every year, and I will be running for Sarah.

For those who missed the deadline and still want to register, here’s a [link] to do so.
