Meet the Three Abdis Who Run St. Johns

Next time you head to St. Johns to watch Blue Collar Wrestling or grab lunch at Mama San Soul Shack, keep an eye out for the Abdis.

Abdinasir Hussein is a junior at Roosevelt High School and one of the best distance runners in the state, and his younger brothers Abdiaziz and Abdirizack are hot on his heels.

Born in Somalia, the Abdis immigrated to the U.S. from a refugee camp in Kenya, and they’ve found their footing (literally) at one of the most diverse high schools in Oregon.

Check out our video to learn more about their story, or head to the PIL District Meet next month to see them in action.
