I am an Austrian marathon runner with Ethiopian roots. Welcome to my website.
I achieved my current peak performance at the Vienna City Marathon on April 7, 2019 with a time of 2 hours 10 minutes and 43 seconds. The Austrian President, Alexander Van der Bellen, personally congratulated me on this achievement at the Hofburg. This result qualifies me for the World Championship in Doha as well as the Olympic participation in Tokyo 2020. My national and international results are shown under EVENTS.
