Tirunesh and Sileshi set for wedding

Addis is gearing up for a high profile wedding this month. Local media have already started talking about it with gusto.

Double Olympic gold champion Tirunesh Dibaba, fondly called the Baby Faced Destroyer, is to marry her long-time fiancé and fellow club mate Sileshi Sihine on Sunday, October 26, 2008.

Tirunehs, 23, and Sileshi 25, met five years ago while training at the Prison Sport Club.

Ethiopialink reported last night that the couple will tie the knot at a church before heading to a reception at Sheraton Addis. Friends and relatives, among them well-known athlete Derartu Tulu are busy planning the wedding and the couples are currently in Dubai shopping wedding materials.

How much the wedding will cost is not known yet but the festivities are expected to light up Addis with firework at around Sheraton Addis. Police marsh will accompany the wedding and probably a helicopter would be hired from the Ministry of Defense to ferry the bride and groom.

A list of Ethiopia’s A-list athletes, government officials and business moguls are expected to attend the event.

Tirunesh, a formidable athlete is notable for her good looks.It was rumored many other athletes in the past were making a romantic advance on her, including Tariku Bekele who was later allegedly warned by Sileshi not to get close to her.

 

(In the picture Tirunehs and Silesh are seen wearing army uniform after their club bestowed them military rank last month.The picture was taken from the Reporter.)

    Perfect couple.

    I have a question though

    ”and Sileshi 25”,

    is that since he stopped smoking or sth ?

  3. October 8, 2008 at 11:44 am

    I’ve always liked Sileshi. Just as much as i feel sorry for him. Couldn’t be easy, playing second fiddle to unbeatables like Qenenisa BeQele year in and year out. But he’s a cutie, and “Qen yemiyametawun maan yawQal?”. So I wish both him and his little “tigress” wife yeAlem yeDesta – serG ena yeGabecha nuro. I doubt I could say the same to Qenenisa’s marriage though. None of my business, true, but his [married life] feels more of a sham than a house built on sand.

    Our Dear ones,

    We wish u all ze best of life happiness in the jorney you are about to begin. Let only death separate you. Marriage is God’s best gift that he gave for us. Unless you handle it wisely, you won’t find the sweet taste it has. May each day make you more closer to eachother and grow in love!

    May God Bless you and your marriage!

    Keep in mind that you represent Ethiopia, including in your marriage too.

    Dear Sileshi and Tirunesh,

    I am really happy for you.

    If i got this chance i would like to say something.

    God gave you this marvelous chance in your life so you have to thank, honor, respect and recognize God.

    “Sew alemun hulu biyaterf nebsun gen biyagodel men yetekemewal”? yelal holly bilbe

    So, you have everything for this world but one thing left which is JESUS CHRIST.

    JESUS said that i am the way,the truth and life so i encourage you to think twice about it becuase a person who doesn’t have life means dead and as JESUS said i am life which means a person who doesn’t have him (JESUS) is a dead person.

    God bless you and i love you
