Subject: RE: Is Solomon Haile really 20 years old? Danny Almonte all over again
the quote above is from this article:
I was thinking about his age today and then I realized it is the year 2001 in the coptic calendar. It doesn't make sense at all to me she would be off by 2 or 3 years. It seems like you would be off by 7. Can someone who knows anything about the coptic calendar explain it to me?
The article does say that the Maryland officials have seen a birth certificate from his school in Ethiopian and it says he's 18.
But I don't think if you confused your calendars he woudl be 21 in the coptic calendar? Can someone clarify.[/quote]
Wejo, as i've said before on this board, the Coptic calendar excuse was a major red flag for me. I've seen Solomon Haile in person and he does look older than your typical teenager, but honestly that is neither here not there. I've been to Addis many times and Amhara look older than many other ethnicities. I'm convinced Naomi is lying, but I'm not sure why. It could be because Solomon is in fact 21 now. Or, it could be simply because there is another reason why they claimed he was 20 instead of 18 last year, a reason she is too embarassed to admit to. I don't know. And as I've also mentioned, for every race he entered using Active.com, he or someone had to enter his 'age on race day'.
What I do know, is Carl Little of the Wash. Post should have done a little research on the Coptic calendar and followed up with some tougher questions.
