Men carried by toothpicks

There they are walking on the sidewalk of Slovenska Cesta in Ljubljana. Two men with legs so skinny that you wonder how they can carry grown men. But the legs of Kenyans Jacob Yator and Stephen Kipkoech Kibiwott are capable of carrying them at speeds some people have trouble reaching by bike. Yator and Kipkoech… Continue reading Men carried by toothpicks
