The Algerian Olympic marathon runner Ald Orrzak Ziane is the favorite to win the race in the Beijing Games. To get ready for his marathon race he has already set off to run there.
Mr Ziane was in second place in the 2008 Sahara Marathon in hot temperatures and can easily withstand heat. His trainer Mr Nadem El-Djaboule told us
"He is ready! The day has come for him to vanquish the other runners and take the Gold Medal for Islam!"
Later Mr Ziane confessed that he was not a believer in Islam and said he was a Christian. Mr El-Djaboule told him to go to China early to "prepare for the Games".
