Our talented Kid Soufiane El Bakkali (Morocco/3000m steeplechase) finished fourth at the IAAF World Junior Championship in Eugène (Oregon) last Sunday.
The gold and silver medals went to runners from Kenya and Bronze medal to runner from Bahrain.
Two laps before the finish line, Soufiane realized that the podium was no longer within reach but he struggled and finished the race with an excellent time of 8:34.98, just two seconds from bronze medal
Soufiane's dream is now to qualify for Rio Olympics in 2016! Go Soufiane!
