You Never Forget Your First
“I remember my first race in Europe, it was back in 2007 in a small city called Malmo in Sweden. I went into it as an inexperienced young man, but it was one of the most exciting races I’ve ever done. I felt like ‘wow, I don’t want to come last there because I might become very disappointed,’ but it was such an exciting moment for me because I graduated into the seniors without any problems. I was just happy to be in Europe and excited for the competition. At that time I was still in high school and I used to be very nervous competing with the seniors because I didn’t have the experience against them.”
– David Rudisha talking about being nervous ahead of his first race in Europe as an 18-year-old still in high school. He needn’t have worried as he ended up winning the race in 1:45.10, beating out Alan Webb by .70 seconds.
