There is no doubt that Usain Bolt and David Rudisha are some of the world’s most talented athletes. A recent, World Athletics post read;
The comment section was a mixed bag, some swearing by 100m record holder Usain Bolt while others were vouching for the 800m record holder David Rudisha.
Rob Bulman commented that Usain Bolt will emerge at the top.
Kev Opati however had a contrary opinion, throwing his weight behind Rudisha;
32 year Old David Rudisha is a middle-distance runner.
The 800m record holder is a 2012 and 2016 Olympic Champion.
The two-time world champion has run a Personal Best time of 44.15 in 400m.
Rudisha is the only person to ever run 800m under 1:41, and holds the world’s best time in the 500 meters, with a time record of 57.69.
32 year Old Usain Bolt is considered the greatest sprinter of all time.
Bolt is the world record holder in 100m, 200m, and 4 by100m relay.
An eight-time Olympic gold medallist, Bolt is the only sprinter to win Olympic 100m and 200m titles at three consecutive Olympics.
He also won two 4 by 100 relay gold medals.
In 400m, Rudisha has a Personal Best time of 45.50 while Bolt’s Personal Best time is 45.28.
Both legends in their own rights and world record holders in their respective disciplines, the race would be a win for sports fans.
It sure will be entertaining.
