REMEMBER last week when I reported on Kenya’s David Rudisha, 21, setting a new World Record for the Men’s 800m with a time of 1:41.09 in Berlin? Well he only went and ran an even faster time yesterday (29 Augustus) in Rieti (Italy)!
The new World Record – pending ratification by the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) – is now a time of 1:41.01.
There can be no doubt about it now; Rudisha will go under 1:41. It is just a matter of time.
