BIOGRAPHY
Bashir was born in Mogadishu, Somalia. When he was 6 years old, he fled his country to Europe. Bashir started athletics at the age of 16.

His first major victory was the Belgian cross-country championships in 2012. He also won the Sylvester cross in the same discipline in 2013. In 2016, Bashir competed in the Rio Olympics for the 5000m and the 10,000m.

In 2019, he ran the London marathon in 2:07:03. He beat the twenty-three year old Belgian record by a considerable margin. A year later, he did even better. With a time of 2:04.49 at the Tokyo marathon, he again smashed his own Belgian record to run the second European time ever. During the hour-long run at the Memorial van Damme in 2020, Abdi ran 21.322 m, a Belgian record. During this race, he also ran a world best time and an official European record in the 20,000m.
In 2021 he ran to a bronze medal in the marathon at the Tokyo Olympics and took the European record in the marathon in Rotterdam with 2h3m35s. For Bashir the best is yet to come.
