Gebremariam wins world cross for Ethiopia
Gebre-egziabher Gebremariam kept the men's individual title at the world cross country championships in Ethiopia after winning a sprint finish to Saturday's championship in Jordan.
Gebremariam took gold ahead of Ugandan Moses Kipsiro and Zersenay Tadese of Eritrea after a testing 12 kilometers over a course at the Bisharat Golf Course in Amman.
He crossed the finishing line in 35 minutes and two seconds, two seconds clear of Kipsiro and 2007 champion Tadese who had the same time, putting daylight between himself and the other medal winners on a sharp rise before the run in to the finish.
Gebremariam succeeds compatriot Kenenisa Bekele as the winner of what is rated as the most competitive race in distance running.
Six-time champion Bekele, the world record holder for 5,000 and 10,000 meters, was forced to sit out the race through injury.

Good job Zeresenay!
We are best at running and worst in Love,living together and helping each other.
I didn’t know there are runners from Tigray. Regardless, am proud of all ethiopians.
The tall and handsome Ethiopian great athlete did run a smart race. Congratulation to him and Ethiopia.
However it is a sad day to all Shabians. According to the reliable sources, the preparation to celebrate their athlete victory was already in place and highly expected to boost the lawless little Eritrea. Issayas himself was asked Taddesse to go to Amman to win the race with big margin knowing the great Ethiopian athletes such as Qenenissa, Slesh, Tariku and Tirunesh wouldn’t be attending.
Yet, another great Ethiopian Athlete, Gebre Mariam showed them and the world, Ethiopia has no shortage of great athletes as usual.
At least Gebre Egziaber Gebremariam (lol) won medal for ETHIOPIA …but what about aka meles zenawi who is working day and naight to the total disintigration of mather ETHIOPIA ???
Some fourty years ago, the song was
Abebe Biweta Be eger welemeta
Mammo Tetektual Marathon Geta
Fourty years later, we were a little down when we found out Kenenisa is not going to part of this year’s cross country team. Geber Ezibher picked up where Kenenissa left off.
Here is the song for this year.
Kenye Bitweta Be Eger Welemeta
Gebre tetektual Ye Ethiopia Alegneta.
We are pround of our boys.
Aster, u little rascal u are trying to divide us with the tigres. Yes there are runners from tigray. Where do u think yifter the shifter is from, that is miruts tebtabaw. There are many others and u know it. But your aearitrean blood is infected.
There are high level diplomtic rumors that Zeresenay is staying behind for fear of persecution back home for not getting the gold.
“I didn’t know there are runners from Tigray.”
This guy finally succeeded after so many disappointments in big races. I cheered him for his perseverance and delivery at the moment it matters most.
I hope Gelete Burka, another disappointing athlete at big stages, will do justice to her failures.
Overall, It is a fantastic result.
ye banda lejohe yelj lejohe
please go to your website we don’t want your comments
Death to Woyane, Arbaminch and AsterØ
I can feel how how hard your in and out is burning. You lost Ansebas, we will engage you in every way and defeat you, Ansebas
Death to you all.
Aster,you don’t know about we Ethiopians,all we are One and we have the power.so just go to sawa and give fac to shaebias
Just another reminder of what it means to be eritrean, that is all. a reflection of their political and economic future. Ethiopian will always get on your way of success. you will never make it past ethiopia. you just have to learn to live with it or die. the latter seems natural.good luck
Wow! this is really amazing, knowing that the race was very anticipating and very tight race. the new Ethiopian guy came out of the blue and beat the two great runners from Kenya and Eritrea. Wow!!Mamamia!!!Olala!!
congratulation Gebre-egziabher and our beloved country Ethiopia!
My brothers/Sisters of Ethiopian/Eritrean people, especially for those of you trying to be the Web Tigers, please help yourself by replacing love over hate toward each other. For me, individuals/group achievement in any things is a victory and I’m happy for their success. We should not relate everything into politics. When some of you try to pass your hate message about the great Ethiopian runner because of he is from Tigray, you just making no body but yourself stupid. If you have any history short about the Tigray/Ethiopian people, please do your home work.
How about Muruse Yefter and Abrham? Read your history
Good Job Gebre ! Proud of you !
