David Rudisha, the Kenyan athlete and the current 800m world champion is set to make history in the upcoming Olympic games set to hold in Rio de Janiero this year.
The Olympic champion would be integrated in the circle of athletes who have managed to keep the Olympic title for a second time.
David Rudisha may equal the records of legends such as, British Douglas Lowe 1924 and 1928, American Whitfield 1948 and 1952 and New Zealander Peter Snell, 1960 and 1964.
These athletes have managed to keep their Olympic title two times in succession.
The Olympic champion is currently recovering from a wound which he sustained last two seasons.
At 27, he said he believes firmly in his talent and in his potential.
“There is no shortcuts to success, Sometimes it is a little bit difficult in training because sometimes I feel pains. But it is just a question of balance, to make things right, listen to the body and to train correctly.”
Rudisha trained at the Saint Patrick’s Day High School where he built for himself a champion’s stature under the advise of trainer O’Connell.
He keeps doing Africa proud with his distance running and we are hoping he seals his name in Gold when the Olympic games commence later this year.
