The Ethiopians Tick The Clock Kenyans Count The Seconds

Well done, Tiki!

  • They Drop the bottle
  • You pick the bottle
  •  You win the Gold

What a powerful performance, what a demonstration of perseverance – even after 42Km and 2 ½ challenging running you still seem to have enough energy to celebrate big time with the crowd – that’s what I call the spirit of Abebe Bikila – the Ethiopian spirit.

The Gold is yours, the Olympic Record is yours (2:23:07) and the joy is ours.

The last women’s Olympic record is 2:23.14 set by Naoko Takahashi of Japan at the 2000 Games in Sydney.













Thank You, Tiki Gelana!!!
