  • Rudisha planning "a quality race" in Split

    No pacing of course but the weather is great here in Split and Rudisha feels strong and ready to run fast from the front. He knows that no-one has run 1:41 without pacing. Let's see how he feels and runs tomorrow.

    Rodal ran 1:42.58 in Atlanta Olympics; I think that is the fastest non-paced 800.....but what is the fastest 'solo' run (ie leading from gun to tape)?

        re Rodahl: it can be argued that any race that had Johnny Gray in it (49.6 in Atlanta) came with a built-in rabbit.

          At that point in Gray's career, yeah. Then again, the '96 Oly final wasn't 'set up' as any kind of paced race. :wink:

          Rudisha could run away from the field if he wants to. It would be kind of interesting to see if he's able to run a tactical race, just burst from the pack with 200 to go. See if he's become a sharper racer since his debacle at last year's WCs.

            If he goes through 400 in 49.0, Kaki and others may be lined up to go through in 49.3, 49.5, etc. Without the help of a rabbit DR would likely not be able to hit 600 in less than 1:15 and change. From there he has to get a 26.xx and that will get him a 1:42, a time that other might run with a rabbit for 790 meters. At least he will not have any bumping , but the others would then be all strung out in a line and running the minimum distance as well.

              Kaki's not on the startlist for tomorrow (he didn't compete at the African Championships).
