Return of the King!
Congratulations from Narok County are in order to our County’s pre-eminent athlete, David Rudisha.
The long legged child of Narok took back his 800m World Champion throne yesterday (August 25) at the IAAF World Championships in Beijing, China.
Rudisha is also the reigning 800m Olympic Champion but it was not clear until yesterday whether he would successfully defend his IAAF World Championship title because of a nagging knee injury that had slowed him down since 2013. In the event, the King shrugged off the fears with an imperial performance, clocking 1 minute and 45.84 seconds.
Hail to the King!
