Wolde Takes Bronze

In the final day of the 5th IAAF World Youth Championships, Dawit Wolde won the Bronze Medal in Boys 1500M, raising Ethiopia’s medal count to four. The Championships have now been concluded and Ethiopia has finished in 10th place with one Gold, one Silver, and two Bronze medals. It is encouraging to see that Ethiopia has up and coming young talents such as Dawit Wolde and Legese Lamisso who are performing well in events in which Ethiopians traditionally have not excelled.
