>> August 23, 2010

Kenyan David Rudisha has broken the men's 800m World record at the ISTAF IAAF World Challenge in Berlin, German on August 22, 2010.

The 21-year-old former World Junior champion clocked 1:41.09 to eclipse the previous mark 1:41.11 set by Wilson Kipketer, a Kenyan-born who went to represent Denmark in 1997 in German.

Special thanks to the pacemaker, Sammy Tangui who did a great job for Rudisha, passing the bell at 48.65. But Tangui shortly stopped, leaving Rudisha alone who started pull away from the field.

I reckon he could be faster if the pacemaker pushes him all the way to 600m!

Rudisha who has 45.50 PB in the 400m reached 600m mark at 1:14.54 but seems no sign of fatigue and speeding through to the line with a new World Record!

In Oslo’s Diamond League meeting in June, he broke Sebastian Coe’s 31-year-old meeting record with a run of 1:42.04.

Then at the KBC Night of Athletics meet in the Belgium in July, Rudisha clocked an impressive 1:41.51, the 2nd fastest of all time. But below is the astounding one:
