David Lekuta Rudisha breaks his 800m World Record barely 1 week after setting it. The 21 year old had set 1:41:09, after crushing Wilson Kipketer's 13 year-old record.
David Lekuta Rudisha,this time (29 August 2010) in Rieti, Italy, again shatters his world record and sets the 800 metres world record at a time of 1:41:01(1 min 41.01 sec).This in line with Rudisha's claim after his first world record, that he could reduce the world record time. In less than a week, Rudisha lowers his world record.
In the 2006 World Junior Championships in Beijing, the young Rudisha was dubbed "Pride of Africa" for his signature fluid African running style and poise, his current streak has lead to him being coined "The Superman of Athletics". David Rudisha's father, Daniel Rudisha, is a Olympic 4x400m relay silver medallist (1968 - Mexico City). Red Hot Rudisha, the son, has ripped up record books twice in one week and shows no signs of stopping anytime soon.
On clocking this new record of 1:41:01, Rudisha covered 400m in 48.20, 600m in 1:14:59 and cleared the last 200m in 26.02s. Boaz Kiplangat Lalang was second in 1:42.95!In third place, Nick Symmonds of the U.S. ran a personal best of 1:43.76, with Micheal Rimmer of Great Britain, finishing fourth, also in a personal best of 1:43.89. European 800 meter Champion, Poland's Marcin Lewandowski, finished fifth in 1:44.10 and European 1,500 meter champion, Spain's Arturo Casada, was sixth in 1;44.74. Rudisha had crushed the 800m record on 22 August 2010 in Berlin, read more information on this article...
