Ethiopian XC trials

IAAF reports
Three-time World Cross Country bronze medallist Meselech Melkamu and upcoming runner Hunegnaw Mesfin were the winners of the senior races at the 28th Jan Meda Cross Country International on Sunday (20), the Ethiopian qualifying trials for the IAAF World Cross Country Championships in Punta Umbria, Spain (20th March 2011).

On a day of dominant performances and few surprises, Ethiopian athletes took the first steps in a bid to recover from a relatively-humiliating performance in last year's world cross where the team returned home with a solitary individual medal.
