Mumbai Marathon 2011: Girima Assefa is Happy to Win

Mumbai Marathon 2011 just finished earlier today and it was Girima Assefa of Ethiopia who clinched the title. Two hours, nine minutes and 57 seconds was his time and many people ran for the race with him.
Girima Assefa is just 24 years old and he is happy to come to India and participate in the Mumbai Marathon. He has expressed his desire to come to this event again.
India is perhaps not the best place for athletics as cricket is the sports that takes away all the attention of people. Still, Mumbai Marathon has its own flavor and charm that attracts many people. In fact, it is a new annual event that takes place in January. It started in 2004.
