Outlook for Rio: Moogas focused on the 5,000m and 10,000m events at the start of his career, but his decision to take up the marathon quickly paid off. He secured his place in Rio in what was just his second competitive marathon and is aiming to break Haile Satayin’s national record of 2:14.21 hours in Rio.
