I wish to see an Ethiopia where the rule of law is guaranteed; human and democratic rights of citizen are respected; poverty is eradicated; economic and social prosperity prevails; and free democratic institutions are established.
ለሰብአዊ ክብርህ ለነጻነትህ ስትል ወገን ንቃ!! ዛሬን ተጠቅመን ለነገ ኢትዮጵያችን ተስፋ እንሁናት !!

Ethiopian Athlete Collapses During Steeplechase
Birhan Getahun of Ethiopia lies on the track after suffering an injury and hitting a hurdle during heat 2 of the men’s 3,000-meter steeplechase.
Ethiopia’s Birhan Getahun had to be wheeled off the track during the second heat of the men’s 3,000-meter steeplechase on Friday after slamming into a hurdle and collapsing to the ground.
Getahun, 20 years old, appeared to suffer an injury during the race and fell after hitting the final hurdle. He held his hand to his head as Games officials assisted him off the track in a wheelchair. Kenya’s Brimin Kiprop Kipruto went on to win the heat.
