After smashing the world junior record in the Standard Chartered Dubai Marathon, teenage sensation Tsegaye Mekonnen Asefa is targeting more record times – including the World Record itself in Dubai next year.
Tsegaye Mekonnen Asefa and Mula Seboka Seyfu took the honours at the Standard Chartered Dubai Marathon today as Ethiopian runners made it a clean sweep of the medals in the world’s richest marathon.
