“Alf Mabrouk to Oussema Mellouli and to Tunisia”
Mellouli has won the gold medal in the men’s 10km marathon for Tunisia. The 28-year-old finished in 1:49:55.1, more than three seconds ahead of silver medal-winner Thomas Lurz of Germany and 5.2sec ahead of Richard Weinberger of Canada.
In Beijing he was celebrated as the first African man to win Olympic swimming medal. In London he is further celebrated as the first swimming to link 10km and 1500m victories, keeping in mind the marathon only entered the Olympics in 2008.
On est tous fière de toi, bonne continuation inchallah
