The New York Times has a new article on Kenyan 800 meter superstar, Olympic Champion and World record holder-set in the Olympic final, David Rudisha and his coach Colm O’Connell Improbably, Missionary Trains Stars in Kenya. Yesterday, both men were in New York City, where Rudisha won the Adidas Grand Prix despite windy and rainy conditions. Rising American star Eric Sowinski crashes to the ground near the finish after tanglinig with another runner.
One British Magazine recently ranked Rudisha among the 50 most marketable athletes in the world.
Here is the London 2012 Olympic Final that is always worth watching.
If you have not watched the Eamonn Coghlan documentary on Brother Colm Man on a Mission, you can see my previous post on it and view it here. It is an excellent documentary and includes footage of David Rudisha training.
