Elvan Without Ethiopia

In Tirunesh Dibaba’s absence, now, the 10k race Gold will easily be snatched for Turkey by the ex-Ethiopian runner, Elvan Abeylegesse. Never in sports history has an ex-Ethiopian won Gold for the adapted nation. What a blow, what a tragedy it would be, for the rich history of Ethiopian Athletics, if, either Elvan or the other ex-Ethiopian, Maryam Yusuf Jamal, (1500m) wins Gold for their respective adopted countries.
