I predicted David Rudisha would break the World Record in Rieti.
He ran a World Record 1:41.09 6 days earlier on August 23rd.
When you analyze the top men’s 800 meters performances over the last 25 years, NINE were set in Rieti.
Make that TEN as of today!
SIDENOTE: In 1997, Wilson Kipketer also broke the record twice in August as he ran 1:41.24 in Zurich on August 13th and 1:41.11 in Cologne on August 24th!
UPDATE: split times
1:41.01 48.9/52.1 diff +3.2
1:41.09 49.1/52.0 diff +2.9
