Kenenisa Bekele, a world & Olympic 5,000m and 10,000m champion, has announced that he plans to return to professional racing, according to EthioSports.com.
Bekele's dry spell came thanks to a muscle injury suffered after competition in Berlin, the article states.
On the other side of the globe, marathoner Ryan Hall chose the same week to announce another type of comeback attempt -- this one being of a nationalistic nature. Hall will make another attempt to become the first American winner of the Boston Marathon in decades.
