In light of Poland's Zofia Dudek winning Foot Lockers today, we thought it would be useful to compile a list of non-American born runners to have won Foot Locker.
We think Dudek is just the 2nd non-American to win a girls title as Eritrean Weini Kelati also won in 2015.
Have any other non-Americans won the girls title?
What about for the men?
We believe the following weren't born in the US.
Grant Fisher* (Canada) - 20132,014 boys winner
Edward Cheserek (Kenya) - 2012-2011 boys’ winner
Lukas Verzbicas (Lithuania) - 2009-2, 010 boys’ winner
Solomon Haile (Ethiopia) - 2008 boys’ winner
Abdirizak Mohamud (Somalia) - 1996, 1997 boys’ winner
Abdul Alzindani (??) - 1995 boys’ winner
*While Fisher was born in Canada, he was a US citizen at birth as his mother is American.
Any one know where Alzindani was born? We had this discussion in 2011 and can't remember the answer.
Does anyone know if any of those runners were US citizens at the time of their wins besides Fisher?
