NATION CHANGE
He arrived in Switzerland in 2004 as a refugee from Eritrea and took up running again. At a race in Geneva, he met his future wife Senait. It opened the possibility for him to become a Swiss citizen and in early 2014 he received a Swiss passport. (nzz.ch, 08 Aug 2014)

NATIONAL RECORD
He ran a new Swiss marathon record of 2:06:40 at the Seoul marathon in March 2016. The previous record was held by Viktor Rothlin with 2:07:45. He missed the European record by only four seconds. "I am extremely happy and proud." The 2:06:40 and national record are for my wife, son and friends. My wife sacrifices a lot for me."
