David Rudisha broke the world record for the 800 meters twice, in seven days, in September 2010. He took the record from 1:41.08 to 1:41.01! In 2011, David Rudisha won his first World Championship title, in 1:43.97. In 2012, David Rudisha has run 1:41.78 and 1:41.52, in less than one month. Oh yes, he ran a 1:42.11 at altitude.

 "A world record needs many things to go well." noted David Rudisha, as he spoke to media, who seem not to comprehend, just because he makes running 800 meter races look easy, the mastery that he has of the event has not been seen in decades. 

 " All I need now is an Olympic gold medal," is what David Rudisha is focused on in the month of August 2012. The Shoe Addicts have presented this video of the greatest 800 meter runner of our generation. We look forward to seeing David Rudisha put the 800 meter record into the stratosphere.
