Good for u ..
Something good for Eritreans to chew for couple of days.
A good reason to cherish their colonial past, cycling, cooking pasta, farting in public, and of course boasting and lying is some of the things no one can bit them at. good on you mate, it was all worth it.
Congradulation! Good job for Daniel, Tigabu and Stephanos.
Congras to Daniel and his team, and to the other winers.
To “good on you” Your are a MORON & LOOSER
There will be no joke for Eritrea when it comes to Cycling.
Eritreans are also getting wonderful in the Athletics also.
Their star Zersenay Tadess is expectedd to be “Athlet of the Year 2010″ which is going to be announced on 17th of November.
This will place Eritrea with other countries like Brazil, which they were known for producing players named ‘Playey of the year” etc….
Only this month, they scored impresive achievements in all fronts:
1) MEB Kiflezghi 6th New York Marathon (while the legend Haile droped out)
2) Teklemariam MEDHIN 1st
3) Teklemariam MEDHIN 1st
4) Cycling of all Africa 1st
5) London Olympics 2012 Guranteed for the first time
Proud to be Eritrean
I’m happy both for the Eretrians and Ethiopians. I think cycling is a cultural sport for Tegra people as athletics is for Oromos.
I have always wondered,but finally something they are good at, its about time. They have something to be happy about now. I know for a fact Issayas ain’t giving it to them
