Categories: Latin America, Mexico, Citizen Media, Indigenous, Sport

El blog HuffPost Voces [1] [es] picked up the story of Maria Salome, a tarahumara [2] indigenous woman who easily won the 10 km of the OXXO [3] international half marathon in Chihuaha, Mexico. The remarkable thing about her victory is that she ran wearing her traditional costume, with no running shoes and no preparation from notorious coaches. Maria Salome is a member of a community that is proud of its running tradition, as this video [4] [es] reports.
