Selemon Barega

Aged just 19, Barega is one of the youngest pacemakers but he has packed a lot into a young career already. He is the fourth fastest man in history over 5000m after winning last year’s Diamond League final in Brussels in 12:43:02. He won a silver medal over 3000m at the World Indoor Championships last year and backed that up by winning a silver medal this week in the 5000m at the World Championships in Doha.
