Born: 20 October 1993  
Marathon best: 2:03:16 (London 2019)

Mule Wasihun finished third behind Eliud Kipchoge and Mosinet Geremew at the 2019 London Marathon where he recorded his PB of 2:03:16, making him the 12th fastest marathoner in history. The Ethiopian returned to London in 2020 when he finished fifth in cold and wet conditions during the elite-only race around St James’s Park. His previous best results came in 2017, when he was second in Dubai in 2:06:46, and in 2018 when he was second in Amsterdam in 2:04:37. He grew up on a farm with three brothers and three sisters, and started out as a 400m and 800m athlete before moving up, inspired by Bekele.
