Also, what about Nijel Amos. Insane run for an 18 year old. Also, doesn't necessarily indicate that it can really be improved, but his form isn't the prettiest.
Overall, pretty incredible race for an olympic final. Wouldn't really expect something like that from anyone but Rudisha.
|I seem to recall|
Kaki was the only person in the final not to set a personal best.
1. Rudish 1:40.91 (world record)
2. Amos 1:41.73 (world junior record)
3. Kitum 1:42.53(PB)
4. Solomon 1:42.82 (PB)
5. Symmonds 1:42.95 (PB)
6. Aman 1:43.20 (National record)
7. Kaki 1:43.32 (SB)
8. Osagie 1:43.77 (PB)
What an awesome run for Amos! Great form, great style.
3rd all time, including easing off the last 10 meters. Amazing!
Rudisha's unbridled joy at the finish is refreshing to see.
What a contrast from his mellow meek serious expression at the start.
What a race! Everyone except Abubakar Kaki was pulled to a new PB! The all owe King David for pacing them to new heights! I am sure their respective federations will not complain that they didn't win any medals since they all ran faster than they have ever run before.
