IAAF World Cross Country Championships remain pretty much a Kenya Vs Ethiopia affair
Tigrai Online, March 27, 2017
For those of you who have been asking who is currently better between Kenya and Ethiopia in the world of IAAF World Cross Country Championships, this year’s edition – set for Sunday in Kampala, Uganda – will probably give you the answer.
So dominant have these two African nations been in cross country championships in the last three decades they are almost synonymous with athletics races.
Since 1973 when the IAAF World Cross Country Championships were inaugurated, replacing the International Cross Country Championships, both Kenya and Ethiopia have between them won a whopping 559 of the 996 possible medals.
