The 23-year-old long distance runner brought glory to the UAE by winning a silver medal the 10,000 metres event at the Asian Games in South Korea. She shaved 40 seconds off her national record in the process, capping a remarkable outing.
Belayneh had an excellent run in 2013, winning gold in the 1,500m at the Asian Athletics Championships. But at the Asian Games this year, the middle distance runner couldn’t quite make it to the podium. However, she managed a fourth place finish, which is still a very good achievement.
MARYAM YUSUF JAMAL
The Olympic bronze medallist from Bahrain had a superb outing at the Asian Games in Incheon, winning her third consecutive gold medal in the 1,500m at the Games. She did an encore in the 5,000m, winning the gold medal. Maryam said she wasn’t ruling out going for a fourth gold in the 1,500m at the 2018 event in Indonesia and the way she has been performing, we believe she can definitely achieve that too.
