Said Aouita - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (576 words)
Aouita's first major international competition was the 1983 World Championships held in Helsinki where he contested the 1500 m.
For the World Championships held later that year, Aouita had provisionally entered the 800 m, 1500 m, 5000 m and 10 000 m (probably to keep his opponents guessing), but eventually decided just to contest the 5000 m.
His final appearance at the World Championships, in 1991 at Tokyo, was a barely noticed eleventh in the 1500 m.
