It’s been a duel all year long between the Botswana double lap star; Nijel Amos who has time and again this year has been getting the better of World Record Holder David Rudisha in the 800 meters. That trend continued again today July 25th 2015 at the London Sainsbury Olympic Anniversary Diamond League meet where Amos outran David Rudisha in the last 60 meters of a race that Rudisha was intent on winning to take another win from the Kenyan 800 meters legend. Nijel Amos of Botswana took the race in a time of 1:44.57 to Rudisha’s second place finish of 1:44.67.
The two African legends will meet in major clash at the World Athletics Championships in Beijing China this summer again and whoever wins will have an edge heading into an Olympic Year.
