Ghirmay GHEBRESLASSIE - Eritrea - Marathon Gold at 2015 World Championship

Nineteen-year-old Ghirmay Ghebreslassie crosses the finish of the marathon at the 2015

World Championships in Beijing. It was Eritrea's first Gold medal at a World Championship.

He was given the flag as he entered the Stadium and was unsure as he passed the finish line

whether he  needed to run another lap.  Hence his lack of a celebration.

Earlier in the year he ran 2:07.47
