  • The REAL World Champs 800

    Okay, Saïd Guerni wasn't in there, but one couuld argue the Brussels 800 was the best race of the year. With Paris making a mess of the rankings, Bungei re-establishes himself as a strong contender for the No. 1 ranking after getting sick and not being able to run in the Kenyan Trials.

    After Zürich, Bungei went to St. Moritz and put in some excellent training. With some big money on the line at the World Athletics Final and the Moscow meet ($50K) the following week, Bungei told his manager, "Moscow will be my World Championships."

    They didn't run heats like the other (tired for sure) guys did. That has to be kept in mind, among other things that people are raising eyebrows over.

      Brussels 800--great time, but not very interesting to watch. Bungei followed the (excellent) pacemaker (how would Bungei have handled the tactical mess of the SC final?), no changes of place after the pacemaker dropped out.

        The guy is a front runner. What tactics?.

        He would have been a handful at the Worlds, I still can't believe the Kenyans couldn't modify their rules and select him.

        The real losers at the World Champs were the two South Africans who ran overconfidently and allowed themselves to be boxed in with 150m to go.
