Ethiopia’s Berihu Aregawi Sets Sights on World Cross Country Gold Ahead of Paris 2024 Olympics

From Youth to International Success: Aregawi’s Journey as an Ethiopian Athlete

In 2018, Aregawi made a name for himself by winning the 3000m gold at the African Youth Games, securing silver at the Buenos Aires 2018 Youth Olympic Games, and earning the 10,000m bronze at the World U20 championship. These successes marked a breakthrough in his athletic career and set the stage for his future accomplishments.

The following year, Aregawi’s confidence received a boost when he won the 2019 Great Ethiopian 10km run, coming close to breaking the course record. This victory served as a stepping stone for him as he transitioned into competing at the senior level, where he faced tougher competition and greater challenges.

Despite his achievements, Aregawi has faced some disappointments. He narrowly missed out on winning a medal at his debut Olympics with a fourth-place finish in Tokyo. He also fell short of securing his first World Championship medals in Oregon and Budapest, coming close but ultimately not reaching the podium.

In 2021, Aregawi broke the 5km world record on the road, marking a significant milestone in his career. Additionally, a silver medal at Bathurst solidified his aspirations of becoming one of the top athletes in his field. He also secured gold and bronze medals multiple times in National Cross Country events during that year which was another significant milestone in his career.

Reflecting on his accomplishments, Aregawi expressed gratitude for the valuable experiences gained from his races. Despite facing challenges and tough competition
