Djibouti athlete gets standing ovation

Houssein Omar Hassan limped home in a time of 11mins 23.50secs in Saturday morning’s heat, which was won by Algeria’s Samir Nouioua in 3mins 57.27secs.

The 35-year-old reportedly told officials after the race that he hurt his achilles early in the race but was determined to finish as he was the east African nation’s only participant at the Games.
