IAAF.org: Alemu, Wami out as Ethiopia names marathon squad for Helsinki

 
 

Elfenesh Alemu, who was fourth at the Athens Olympic Marathon, and Ethiopian national marathon record holder Gete Wami are the surprise omission as Ethiopia announced its provisional marathon squad for the 10th IAAF World Championships to be held in Helsinki, Finland (August 6-14 2005).

But two-time Olympic 10,000m champion Derartu Tulu is in line to make her major championship marathon debut after making the squad, while there are a lot of fresh talent throughout the men’s squad as Ethiopia begins life without its established stars.
