Amel TUKA - Bosnia - 800m bronze medal at 2015 World Championships.

Amel Tuka was the fastest qualifier for the men's 800 metres final in Beijing, winning

his semi final in 1.44.84 and therefore with prospects of finishing at the front

of the final - which he indeed did.  2011 World Champions David Rudisha won with

European Champion Adam Kszczot taking the silver medal and Amel the third medal.

The month before the championships Amel had set a new personal best of 1:42.51,

in Monaco.
