I don't think he'll medal but hope he does. What do you guys think?
The 4 best guys from the Ethiopian team are absurdly good:
Muktar EDRIS 14 Jan 94 - 12:54 last summer Hagos GEBRHIWET 11 May 94 - 12:47 pb (allegedly at age 17). Atsedu TSEGAY 17 Dec 91 - 58:37 NR for 13.1 Tamirat TOLA 11 Aug 91 - 2:06:17 marathoner Tesfaye ABERA 31 Mar 92 - 60:32/2:09:46 Bonsa DIDA 21 Jan 95 - 61:12/2:12:33
I took a look at the Kenyan/Ethiopian teams a few weeks ago in the Week that Was. Ethiopia seems to be a little stronger up front in terms of individual medals as they have 4 sub 13/27/60/2:07 guys whereas Kenya has two. bit Derrick certainly is going to have his hands full.
