Bianca, 11:16.35, 1st Open Girls


Ruby, 2:43.16, 2nd G15

Muse, 2:05.88, 1st B18-20

Ruby's time was around the same as last year but the weather turned very nasty while her race was on and she was running against a very strong headwind (and it was cold and wet).
The weather cleared up a bit for the boys 18-20 800 which Muse won! His first lap was a very fast 60" and he ended up winning by 7 seconds! 


Bianca, 5:14.7, 1st G14

Ruby, 5:33.85, 2nd G15

Muse, 4:24.57, 2nd B18-20 (but official results show 5:01)

Zach, 4:40.56, 2nd B17

Athan 5:02.51, 6th B15

I had thought that Ruby had had the worst weather of the day for her 800, but during Muse's race there was a hailstorm. Muse's time was about the same as last year under extremely difficult conditions. Well done!

Bianca, Ruby, Zach and Muse all go through to the State Champs. Congratulations!

A brilliant run from Hayelom Dawit secured victory for the Division 2 team, with the up-and-coming junior reeling in the Western Athletics’ runner over the final stages of his 4.9km leg to stop the clock in 2hr 35min 8sec for the 44.1km event made up of six legs of varying lengths. The team enjoyed a see-sawing battle with Western Athletics all day, with juniors Dawit, Muse Tesema and Zach Mottram all stepping up to the open ranks and putting in strong performances to combine beautifully with Asmelash Tesema and two non-AEARA runners ( Mitchel Brown and Toby O’Brien).

Article by Linh Ly in Moonee Valley Leader:

( Picture: ADAM ELWOOD )
POUNDING the pavement used to be a mode of travel for Muse Tesema, now it is a pathway to success.
Muse, 16, of Flemington, has set his sights on Olympic glory, having broken away from a difficult childhood.
Muse was born in Ethiopia with a significant hearing impairment and didn’t start speaking until age eight.
His parents died in separate accidents and he and his brother, Ashmelash, and sister, As
miret, moved in with their aunt who, in 2012, brought them and her five children to Australia.
Now studying at Mt Alexander College, Muse’s teachers identified his running prowess and selected him to compete at last year’s interschool competition.
It was there his support aid, Marie Foca, had a chance encounter with Australia East Africa Running Academy founder Keith Fearnley, who organised for Muse to receive free coaching from former Olympians Barb Augustin and Tony Benson (ed: Barb is not a former Olympian).
“The first time I saw him run, you could tell he was a runner,” Augustin said. “There was something natural about the way he ran.”
Muse said he started running to keep healthy and loved how fun it was.
It’s something that come naturally to him, having as a child fast-tracked the twohour walk to his aunt’s home by running instead.
Muse’s dedication to training led to him qualifying for the Australian Junior Athletics Championships in Sydney in March.
His school and the Rotary Club of Strathmore covered much of the costs to send Muse and Augustin to the event, where he recorded a personal best of 2min 3sec in the 800m.
“He hasn’t even been training for 12 months and for him to get to an Australian championship is fantastic,” Augustin said.
