A host of world and Olympic medalists/3:30/1:42 guys and he ran with balls from the front on Rudisha's shoulder the whole way. 1:43.84 is LEGIT! Vigil has another pupil.
you guys at letsrun are far too conservative
i have seen ~ 90% of every < 1'43 live on satellite or race on sportsreel day or 2 later
( only missing coupla Kip's 1'42s, coupla johnny's/cruz's 1'42s & full races of Rudy's 1'42s in nairobi
i've seen every < 1'42 live on satellite/cable/terrestial apart from coe's mickey-mouse firenze run when last coupla 100 shown on weekend after )
that race was quite simply windiest elite 800 ever !!!
straight after, bolt's legs nearly crumbled into a 2.8 !!!
i have absolutely no doubt you have to take 1s off boris's time for that brutal wind
he has to be considered currently, in ideal conditions :
~ 1'42-high !!!
he may be even better as beating bosse who was a 1'42.5 guy last year & this was race to get back there
look for boris to have a damn good go at johnny's 1'42.59 record this year...
