Photos of him running in a pair of blue sandals went viral, attracting various comments from his fans who had termed it his ‘magic weapon’.

“The African runner is truly talented. Compared to the other competitors with much better althetic tools, his sandals seem to be a fair statement on his true ability, telling the world that a good runner can run without any outside assistance” a citizen wrote on Sina Wabo.

Following speculations on whether the sandals actually boost his stamina as he also won last week’s Jingyuan international marathon in Gansu provice with the same pair of sandals, Amogne Sendeku in an interview attested his success to good luck and intense training rather than special powers.
