No surprise we see yet another superior performance by David Rudisha in Rieti.
The track is known for its fast times and world leaders after a major Championship.
Yes, it’s the hard track and favorable winds. See conspiracy theories below.
Yes, it’s a “straight finals” meet instead of the rounds.
Yes, it’s after THE biggest meet of the year so they are relaxed and they can go for broke. Or take chances and die trying.
Either way, the payday is nice just for showing up, and setting a world record in the process is bonus.
Here is the video on YouTube. The splits will be updated as soon as I can get them.
UPDATE: Sorry, the video is no longer on YouTube.
