Got 10 minutes? Watch this video:
"On 'Road of Death,' Somali Olympic marathon hopefuls train"
The video shows how some Somali athletes avoid gunfire each day to realize their dream of competing and winning at the 2012 Games.
Maybe letsrun should sponsor them as they have like zero money and equipment.
I tried to look up the stats of the features runners.
Abdinasir Said Ibrahim is listed by tilastopaja.org as being 21 and having run 14:21 in the 1st round of the Beijing Games.
The other guy was listed as being Jamal Osman and I can't find any stats on him. If anyone knows anything, please post it here.
A great video.
