David Rudisha has spent most of this year rebuilding his fitness and racing form. He has had some good moments, but, for the world record holder, this season has had its' frustrating moments. 

The Weltklasse will be his final event of the season. David Rudisha told us at the Birmingham press conference that he wanted to protect his DL lead, but he has a difficult task on 28 August. The field will be tough and the stakes are high.

In a recent piece with EME News, David Rudisha speaks about his desire to have the world best for 600 meters. He ran a 1:13.71 for the 600 meters in Birmingham last weekend, to the delight of the crowd. 

Rudisha wants 600 m world best in future

ZURICH (SUI): World record holder David Rudisha spoke before his last race of the season on Thursday at Weltklasse meet. „This is a difficult season for me. It's not easy to come back from an injury. I started training very late, in March. By then, I had missed a lot of necessary workouts.  Maybe I expected to do better, but I was happy to run with these guys who had been training very well. It's a challenge if you are not at 100%. Actually, I am at 85, maybe 90% of my form. But I can still run 1:43, probably 1:42 at this time. After Birmingham, I am sure that once I am back in my best shape, I can break the 600m world record. I am going to try again in any case," he said.
