Abebe Dinkesa and Wude Ayalew win at Venta de Baños

At the 27th Cross Internacional de Venta de Baños, Abebe Dinkesa and Wude Ayalew each won their respective races. Abebe Dinkesa who has the third fastest Ethiopian 10000M time behind Kenenisa Bekele and Haile Gebrselassie beat out Kenyan Hosea Macharinyang. Abebe had had a great 2005 clocking 26:30.74 which was the third fastest 10000M that year. 2006 had been expected to be a breakout year for the 22 year old but an illness has set him back. This win will firmly put his career back on track. 18 year old Wude Ayalew has been cranking out wins in 2006 and this adds to her great year.
