RECENT CONTRIBUTIONS OF IMMIGRANTS

Posted on by

Two immigrants from Africa have just recently completed marathons in incredibly mind-baffling amounts of time. 

Gebre Gebremariam, who is 26 years old and from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.  He finished the New York City Marathon in 2 hours, 8 minutes, and 13 seconds – that means he ran over 1/3 of a mile per minute!

Edna Kiplagat, who is 31 and from Kenya finished the New York City Marathon in 2 hours, 28 minutes, and 19 seconds.  She ran an average of 2/5 of a mile per minute! She’s also won three other marathons throughout 2010. 

BOILA congratulates both Mr. Gebremariam and Ms. Kiplagat on their accomplishments.  This is just one of the many examples of how much talent immigrants contribute to the U.S.
