The Indoor New Balance Grand Prix was last nights highlight of events in the running world. However, it was Ethiopia’s Dejen Gebremeskel that stole the show. Gebremeskel was victorious in the 3,000 meter with only one shoe on!
Similiar to the Indianapolis 500 when a racer blows a tire, Gebremeskel lost his right shoe in the second lap of the 3,000 meter distance. But unlike the Indy 500, this racer did not pull in for a pit stop. Gebremeskel, in spite of losing a piece of fundemental running attire, kept pace overtaking the competition.
England’s Mo Farah and Kenya’s Nixon Chepseba were just ahead of Gebremeskel. They exchanged first place throughout the remainder of the laps but in the end it was Gebremeskel who took first place with a time of 7:35.37. Finishing with a very dirty sock, Gebremeskel held up his lost shoe in victory, "t was really hard (with no shoe on the turns), it burns you," Gebremeskel said in an article in the Boston Herald.
