David Rudisha Breaks World Record 1:41.01, Nesta Carter Runs 9.78 4th Fastest of All Time

>> August 30, 2010

David Rudisha second WR in a week, 1:41.01
I was said that David Rudisha will break many more World record by next year after he surpassed the long-standing WR of 1.41.11 by Wilson Kipketer at Berlin on 24th August. However in less than a week the Kenyan has broken another World record!

The 21-year-old bettered his baby World Record of 1:41.09 to a new 1:41.01 at the IAAF World Athletics Challenge in Rieti Italy. Thanks again to the rabbit (pacemaker), Sammy Tangui who paced him at 48.20 in the first 400 metres, faster than the bell’s time in Berlin (48.65).

Rudisha then took the lead at about 500m and hitting the 600m mark in 1:14.69 which just slower than in Berlin (1:14.54). At the home stretch, run against the clock he did a magic speed to stop the clock as the quickest time in history for two laps.

Second place went to countryman Lalang Kiplagat, clocking an impressive PB of 1:42.95 while USA’s Nick Symmonds, third with a new PB of 1:43.76. GBR's Michael Rimmer and Poland's Marcin Lewandowski also finished with personal bests with 1:43.89 and 1:44.10 respectively.
Nesta Carter's world lead 9.78

Again, I had assumed Tyson Gay as the best sprinter in 2010, he won the Diamond League Trophy, has beaten Usain Bolt and sets the world leading time of 9.78 in London. But Nesta Carter got out of the block like a bullet then delivered a strong finish to tied Gay’s time on the super fast track at the stadium which famous for the world record-breaking.

Nesta Carter, Asafa Powell's training partner, who set 9.86 at the IAAF EAA meeting in Luzern, Switzerland and then improved to 9.85 at the London Diamond League, established him as the fourth fastest man in history, surpassing the big names Maurice Greene (9.79), Donavon Bailey and Bruny Surin (9.84), Leroy Burrell, Justin Gatlin and Olusoji Fasuba (9.85).

Took advantage form the fabulous condition, five other men has dipped under 10s barrier. Ryan Bailey of USA registered a new personal best with 9.88, improved 0.07 from his 9.95 at SF. Jamaican Mario Forsythe who trains with Usain Bolt and runs 9.99 in SF was third in 9.95. Bailey and Forsythe's performances at the SF making them as the 73rd and 74th athletes to break 10s.

With Forsythe first time to break 10s, Jamaica has accumulated a total of nine sprinters who has run below 10s, surpassed Nigeria which has produced eight while powerhouse the USA, after added Ryan Bailey, accumulating 35.

Christophe Lemaite, the first white man to break 10s with 9.98 at French Nationals and the new Europen Sprint king on fourth in a new French record of 9.97, his third sub 10s after a 9.98 at SF. World Championship silver medalist, Michael Frater of Jamaica, was fifth in 9.98. American Michael Rodgers finished sixth in 10.00, edging Jayasuma Saidy Ndure (PB 200m 19.89), who set a new Norwegian record of 10.00.

With sunny conditions and a 29 degree Celsius of temperature plus tailwinds, it was the best results from the 100m final in history after the 1991 World Championship in Tokyo where 6 men have dipped under 10s. Following are results and videos.
