03.06.2010 - Spotlight 800 meters: at a sweet Strawberry Party, a sweet look at tomorrow’s clash
Kenia’s David Lekuta Rudisha and Sudan’s Abubakir Kaki were supposed to attended a Press Conference during the traditional Strawberry Party at Bislett Game’s eve, but the two 800m super-stars preferred to rest and left the conference table to other main actors of the meeting and, of course, to the sweet, red fruits.
Even without the two African athletes, the 800m were subject for debate. Why not? The clash between Rudisha (pb: 1:42.01 in Rieti 2009) and Kaki (pb: 1:42.69 in Oslo 2008) has the prospect of a fantastic race. “Since 2008, we have expected these two guys to dominate the world scene”, Rudisha’s manager James Templeton said.
