Quote Of The Day
“I know her, but when I last saw her, she wasn’t this strong, so I thought she was pacing. … [Coburn] was gone. I wasn’t paying attention to her. I didn’t see her at all. Believe it or not, after I finished, I was looking for someone to hand me the [winner’s] bouquet.”
“I still didn’t know at that point! When I looked up ahead, [Coburn] was holding the bouquet and waving it. I said to Hiwot [Ayalew], ‘Wait – does that mean we’re second and third?!’ Hiwot was shocked. She couldn’t believe it. We’d thought we were first and second. I couldn’t believe it. I thought I’d won.”
