# Africans # Ethiopa

Africans Shines At The IAAF World Championships In London + List Of Honours



Athletes from the African continent together won 28 medals at the IAAF World Championships which ended August 13 in London, putting Africa just behind the USA at 30 medals... Kenya (11 medals) and South Africa (6 medals) came in second and third place overall, with Ethiopia in 7th with 5 medals, just a nudge behind the host country UK. Congratulations to all.

Congratulations to the African team for representing us in a great way! I wish African governments can invest more in sports and lead Africa to the top.



My Thought,
When you compare what big wealthy countries like the US, UK, China, and Germany spend on their athletes, it is truly remarkable what Africa is achieving.
At the last IAAF tournament Kenya was actually the top country in medals, even ahead of the USA.
Well, i think once African governments, and entrepreneurs (like myself) begin to really invest in sport you are going to see total dominance from Team Africa.
