Ethiopia selects team for East African XC Champs

The Ethiopian Athletics Federation (EAF) today announced its squad for the upcoming East African cross country championships to be held in Nairobi, Kenya on 26-27 February 2005.

The squad, which consists of little-known athletes, was selected from the country’s youth development projects in order to allow them to gain international exposure. Many of Ethiopia’s elite runners will stay back in Addis Ababa for the Ethiopian cross country championships, the qualifying meet for the 33rd IAAF World Cross Country Championships in St-Etienne/St-Galmier, France.
