East Africa is renowned for the quality of her endurance athletes. Kenya has consistently dominated endurance events since the 1968 Olympics, easily qualifying as the most successful Olympic country when resources and population are taken into consideration. Although not having achieved anywhere near the same level of success, Tanzania has a good number of world-class endurance athletes such as Francis Naali, Commonwealth Games Marathon Champion, and John Yuda, Bronze Medallist in the 10,000 metres at the same games in Manchester 2002. This is an excellent return for a country, which could only afford to send a team of eight to the games. With better investment, we believe that Tanzania will produce more world-class athletes and your running holiday can help achieve this.
