  • 48 year old runs 29:44 for 10k at altitude.

    girma berhanu ran a 29:44 to place 11th in the 10k at the great ethiopian run last week, berhanu ran a 13:33 for 5k at altitude in 1979, and his best 10k is 27:57 in 1984.

    mo farah of great britain placed 15th in the same race.

    Almost certainly a much younger person with the same name. Both Girma and Berhanu are very common names in Ethiopia.

      Yeah, the Tilastopaja site is largely automated, so if somebody new comes on the scene with the same name as somebody who already exists in its database, the machinery makes the assumption it's the same person. (Not that it takes away in any way from the most valuable stat site on the planet.)
