People of the world know Abebe Bikila more than his country Ethiopia. Forty two years ago, Bikila had broken World Marathon record at Rome running at his barefoot. He broke the world Marathon record twice consecutively.
The peoples of the world outside Africa were presuming Africans as emotional dangerous people at spot like wild lives. It was Bikila who broke this world mindset running patiently for two hours on barefoot breaking the Marathon record that Africans have endurance in achieving their goals.
Today, another Ethiopian athlete hero Haile Gebresellassie took the patriot shield of Bikila. Gebresellassie, broke over twenty five records in world athletes and never in the world compete his performance to date.
Would it be possible to get 2010 World Cup hero African team that magnify the image of their continent?
