Overview by IAAF   ESTADIO ULLEVI 
Kipketer – a Kenyan who moved to Denmark in 1990 – was favourite to take gold for his new country after clocking 1:42.87 in Monaco shortly before the championships. He confirmed his status with a brilliant finish to his semi-final clocking 23.9 for the final 200m. 112 DOHA 2019  PAST RESULTS/WORLD CHAMPS MEN’S 800m A slow pace in the final favoured the fast finishers. The first lap was covered in 52.53, at which point Kipketer was 6th in around 52.7. Rodal was the leader at the bell and continued on in front. Motchebon challenged at 600m, tracked by Kipketer. Rodal, however, stayed in front throughout the final bend. Kipketer, running wide, hit the front as the field swung into the final straight. He won comfortably after a 25.3 final 200m and was was the only finalist to run his second lap (52.4) quicker than his first. Hatungimana – dropped by his coach after running poorly at the 1995 World Indoor Championships – also passed Rodal to win the silver medal.

These are the official results of the Men's 800 metres event at the 1995 IAAF World Championships in Gothenburg, Sweden. There were a total number of 49 participating athletes, with two semi-finals, and seven qualifying heats and the final held on Tuesday August 8, 1995.

The final pared down to 8runners who believed in their kick. Vebjørn Rodal became the leader with Wilson Kipketer at the end of the field. Rodal led through an easy pace 52.53 through the first lap. With 200 to go, Nico Motchebon moved to the front, covered by Kipketer, but Rodal didn't relinquish the lead. Kipketer timed his big burst for 70 metres before the finish, Rodal had no answer but held off Motchebon, the rest of the field fading away. Coming from behind Motchebon, Arthémon Hatungimana was able to gradually gain on Rodall, passing him just a step before the finish.
