Ethiopian athletics legend Haile Gebrselassie beat Britain's Paula Radcliffe in a half-marathon challenge at the Vienna city marathon on Sunday, with four months to go before the London Olympic event.

The Ethiopian two-time 10,000m Olympic gold medallist, taking part in his second Vienna race, finished the 21.1 kilometres (13.1 miles) in 1hr 00min 52sec, failing to better his 2011 result of 1hr 00min 18sec.

Women's marathon world-record holder Radcliffe finished in 1hr 12:03.— AFP
