Kirani JAMES - Grenada - Silver medal for defending champion in Rio.

Defending champion Kirani James ran a season best in the Olympic final but oh boy !

World Champion Wayde van Niekerk running in lane 8 set a new world record and

came so close to the first ever sub 43 second run. Some consolation for Kirani was

the fact he beat LaShawn Merritt.
