I was blown away! David Rudisha of Kenya is the current World Record holder for 800m (1:41.01) and was the favorite at IAAF Diamond League/Adidas Grand Prix last Saturday. There was no competition. Having run the first 400m in 49.09, it was all him in the second 400m. I assume the field would be stronger at the Olympics final, but he just looked awesome last Saturday. I don’t know where he is in terms of training/conditioning to peak at the Olympics in August. Assuming he has not peaked yet, I just cannot wait till I see him run the 800m final in a new very likely World Record time. August 9 18:30 BST, 10:30 PDT. I will be in front of my TV! I wish I could see the race in person!!
