|Oh those Kenyans...David Rudisha breaks WR again to win Olympic 800m gold|
Kenya's David Rudisha stormed to 800m gold in a world record time at London 2012 to cap four years of dominance of the two-lap event.
The 23-year-old world champion scorched around the Olympic Stadium in 1min 40.91sec to beat the record of 1.41.01 he set in 2010.
Nijel Amos of Botswana won silver in 1.41.73, while bronze went to Timothy Kitum of Kenya in 1.42.53, both athletes running personal bests.
Rudisha followed his father Daniel, who won a silver in the 4x400m relay in Mexico in 1968, as a Games medallist but is the first Olympic champion from his Maasai tribe.
