LONDON 2012: Day 13: Olympic hero of the day - David Rudisha


Without a doubt it's Kenya's David Rudisha who shattered the world record with a lightning fast run in the 800m to win by such a big margin that most of the other runners were outside the camera frame when he was c
rossing the finish line. And those other runners ran REALLY fast times, all clocking personal or seasonal bests, or national records. The time run by Britain's Andrew Osagie, who was last to cross the line, would have been good enough for gold at the last three Games.

Rudisha ran 1:40.91 to break the record he had set two years ago which was 1:41.01. The 23-year-old has set the three fastest 800m times of all time. The 800m world record is the first record in the track to be broken in the London Games.

Oh and did I mention that was his Olympic final debut? He's unbelievable!

When you travel, remember that a foreign country is not designed to make you comfortable. It is designed to make its own people comfortable.

Congratulations to him to break that record. It is quite impressive and I hope that he can break it in the next Olympics.
