In what was anything but a surprise, David Rudisha of Kenya took home the gold medal in the men’s 800-meter race.
Rudisha may have been the clear favorite to win the middle-distance race, but he followed through in absolute style (via ESPN UK):
With a time of one minute, 40.91 seconds, the 23-year-old Kenyan broke his own record that he had previously set twice already. It was truly one of the most impressive performances of these Games.
