Ethiopia born Spanish athlete Alemayehu Bezabeh took the 9.997km men’s senior race

Dublin, Ireland - For the first time in the history of the Spar European Cross Country Championships, Spain has won a gold medal at the men’s individual race. Alemayehu Bezabeh, who originally comes from Ethiopa, took the 9.997km men’s senior race on a cold but dry day in Dublin.

Although it was the 16th edition of the championships Bezabeh is only the sixth male runner to win this gold medal. This is mainly because of Ukraine’s Sergiy Lebid, who has won eight titles so far. But on Sunday his golden streak was interrupted once more. Lebid, who last lost in this competition in 2006, still won a medal: Behind Mo Farah (Great Britain) he finished third on a muddy parcours in Santry Park, where more than 5000 spectators lined the loop course.
