The Wider Image: Going for gold in the Great Rift Valley
A general view shows part of the escarpment of the Great Rift Valley near the town of Iten in western Kenya, March 20, 2016. In Kenya's western town of Iten, known as the "Home of Champions" for drawing runners to train from around the world, athletes rise to pound the track and dirt roads at dawn. Kenyan athletics champions like marathon world record holder Dennis Kimetto and 800 metre champion David Rudisha have trained there, alongside Britain's double Olympic and world champion Mo Farah and a host of others. At 2,400 metres (7,900 feet), the altitude makes Iten an ideal location for established middle and long distance races to build their endurance and stamina.

Spotlight: Modernist architecture in Eritrea
A woman sits next to an escarpment on the outskirts of Asmara, Eritrea, February 20, 2016. Eritrea's capital city boasts one of the world's finest collections of early 20th century architecture, which the authorities want declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. When Italy's colonial experiment in Eritrea ended in 1941, it left behind an array of Rationalist, Futurist, Art Deco and other styles of Modernism in Asmara, a city they nicknamed "La Piccola Roma" or "Little Rome".

A wave breaks above a coral escarpement in an area called the 'Coral Gardens' located at Lady Elliot Island and 80 kilometers north-east from the town of Bundaberg in Queensland, Australia, June 10, 2015. UNESCO World Heritage delegates recently snorkeled on Australia's Great Barrier Reef, thousands of coral reefs, which stretch over 2,000 km off the northeast coast. Surrounded by manta rays, dolphins and reef sharks, their mission was to check the health of the world's largest living ecosystem, which brings in billions of dollars a year in tourism. Some coral has been badly damaged and animal species, including dugong and large green turtles, are threatened. UNESCO will say on Wednesday whether it will place the reef on a list of endangered World Heritage sites, a move the Australian government wants to avoid at all costs, having lobbied hard overseas. Earlier this year, UNESCO said the reef's outlook was "poor". Picture taken June 10, 2015. REUTERS/David Gray

Buddhist monk walks through the ancient ruins of Preah Vihear
A Buddhist monk walks through the ancient ruins of Preah Vihear, a long-disputed temple on the Thai-Cambodian border May 30,2006. The Hindu-influenced temple, which is only easily accessible only from Thailand where it is known as Khao Phra Wihan, is a sacred site for tourists from both countries, attracting some 10,000 visitors a year. The temple, located on a rocky escarpment that marks the Thai-Cambodian border, was given to Cambodia in 1962 by the International Court of Justice. But the land around the temple complex has been in dispute since then. Photo taken May 30, 2006. REUTERS/Sukree Sukplang

Eritrean kids pose for the camera before heading up the mountainside to pick prickly pears on the eastern escarpment close to the capital Asmara August 26, 2005. The cactus covers highland regions in Eritrea and produces the prickly pear or ?beles?. Most fortunately of all, the beles season falls during the hunger season, when last year?s harvest has run out and the next harvest is not due for several months. With roughly two-thirds of Eritrea?s 3.6 million population requiring food aid this year, the pippy fruit is an invaluable source of income and nutrition. REUTERS/Ed Harris
