Splits: 800m men’s final

16 Aug 2016

Alfred Kipketer hadn’t read the script: Rudisha always goes first. That’s his thing. Sometimes fortune does favour the brave, but Kipketer’s opening 23.2-second 200m just made him look a bit silly in the end. The medals were decided by who had saved enough in the tank for the home stretch. Makhloufi played it smart, while Murphy came through with his signature sweet kick.
