David RUDISHA - Kenya - 2016 Olympic Games 800m champion.

David Rudisha successfully defended his Olympic 800 metres title in Rio.

He became only the fourth man in history to defend the title after Douglas Lowe, Mal Whitfield

and Peter Snell - the latter being over fifty years ago (1960/1964). The runner up was

Taoufik Makhloufi, the 2012 Olympic 1500m champion, who set a new Algerian record

of 1:42.61.

Rudisha ran a season best as did Clayton (PB as well), Bosse, Rotich and Lewandowski.
