Overview by IAAF  
Rudisha, unbeaten since Berlin 2009, made his intentions crystal clear in the final, blasting through 200m in 23.81, before easing down to 51.33 at halfway. Speeding up slightly, the Kenyan passed 600m in 1:17.99, just over a metre clear of Kaki and Borzakovskiy. Rudisha led by a metre from the Russian veteran as they entered the finishing straight, but he then drew clear to win from Kaki, who overtook Borzakovskiy 25m from the finish. For Rudisha it was his 24th successive 800m victory (or 31st including heats).
