I just got sent a link today from last weeks Düsseldorf 800 where Beijing silver medallist Ismail Ahmed Ismail cruised to the win over Reed College's Boaz Lalang and Yuriy Borzakovskiy.
Here it is (I'll work on embedding it)
Isameil is great (he was a finalist in 2004 as well), but he's Sudan's #2 800m man. It reminded me of Kaki at last years Olympics where after winning every race all year and his heat, he finished 8th in his semifinal.
Does anyone know what caused Kaki to do so badly? He didn't race in 2008 after Beijing.
