The best 800m runner currently on the planet came from behind to pass Adam Kszczot on the final lap before the raucous packed Polish crowd to get gold. Poland was silver and bronze for a little while until Marcin Lewandowski was DQed and Andrew Osagie upgraded to bronze.
Final recap with post-race analysis/video. Bernard Lagat at age 39 had a tremendous kick on Sunday, but he met his match in a younger version of himself as Caleb Ndiku was too good the final lap. Galen Rupp was a very respectable 4th.
