    Making their bids to rise from the crowded ranks of their nation’s deep well of distance talent, junior runners Abe Gashahun and Fotyen Tesfay were the surprise winners at the 16th Great Ethiopian Run 10km road race in Addis Ababa on Sunday (20).

    Gashahun, 18, won one of the closest finishes in the race’s 16-year history, just edging Kenyan Jerome Lumbasi by one second in 28:53.

    Four athletes entered the final home straight locked together before Gashahun clinched victory just a few metres from the finish.

    Gashahun, who is coached by Haji Ajilo comes from Debre Birhan, 120 kilometres northeast of Addis Ababa, and had travelled to the capital yesterday for this race.

    “I hope that my win today will give me more opportunities to compete in international races abroad,” said Gashahun, who finished eighth at the 2015 IAAF World Cross Country Championships in Guiyang, China, and fifth over 5000m at the African Junior Championships that same year, also in Addis Ababa.
