All Africa Games- July 20

Deriba Merga, who had an outstanding season in 2006, continued to show great form in 2007 taking the gold medal in the Half-Marathon at All Africa Games with a winning time of 1:02:24. Deriba is a talented runner who has already achieved good results but has a promise of even greater future achievements.

In women's 3000M Steeplechase, Mekdes Bekele took the silver medal in 9:49.95 and Netsanet Achano won the bronze in 9:51.63. Both medals represent the first time Ethiopia has ever won a medal in this event in international competition.
