David Lekuta Rudisha claimed gold in the 800m final to retain his 2012 Olympic title.
The Kenyan has cemented his status as one of the Games’ greatest 800m runners after finishing in 1:42.15 minutes
“Running 1:42, it’s just fantastic. I had no doubts before,” Rudisha said. “The feeling in my body was good. It is great to win such a big competition, my second gold. It’s so great. I am so excited. It is the greatest moment of my career.”
Rudisha, the current world champion and world record holder, becomes the first man since New Zealander Peter Snell in 1964 to successfully defend the Olympic 800m title
