Ethiopia - Belete Assefa wins Boulder 10K Title
BOULDER, Colo. — The Ethiopians dominate the Bolder Boulder no matter who’s wearing the bib.
Belete Assefa spread his arms out like an eagle when he entered Folsum Field to the roar of tens of thousands of amateur runners, then loped through the tape more than five seconds ahead of countryman Solomon Gonfa in the annual 10-kilometer men’s race Monday.
“I heard the crowd and put my arms out,” Assefa said. “That’s when I knew I’d won the race.”
Assefa, who finished in 29 minutes, 22.56 seconds, is the third straight Ethiopian to win the annual Memorial Day race, and he helped the Ethiopians win their fifth straight International Team Challenge, too.

Near Denver “mile high city", where the altitude is very challenging, it is so impressive to see our guys dominate for the last 4 years.
Way to go!!
Bertu wegenoche! There will be a green, yellow and red flag all over the world in Olompic next time.
It is a great achievement as usual.
Denver’s altitude(in the 5ks feet) is seen as low compared to Ethiopia while the majority of the Ethiopian plain land averages at least 7000 feet.
