Ethiopian Athletes Win 800m Race over Kenyans

Ethiopian-Athlets-win-over-KenyansJuly 16, 2017 - Ethiopian athletes, Nberet Melesa and Bodena Toles won the World Under-18 Championships 800m distance run held in Kenya, coming in first and second, respectively.  "We had planned to stay ahead of the pack but it seems the Ethiopians were stronger than us," said Kibiwott, a Kenyan athlete who won the bronze medal .

Kenya failed to secure any victory on the penultimate day of the championships on Saturday, winning one silver and three bronze medals. Dominic Samson started the day with the historic bronze medal in the boys' 10,000m race walk as Mpoke Moitalel went for boys' 400m hurdles silver.

Then some awful tactics too might have cost Kenya victory in girls' 1,500m where favourite Edina Jebitok took off early with 600m to go to settle for bronze as Ethiopians Lemlem Hailu and Sindu Girma went for a 1-2 sweep.
