This week, we hear from Olympic and World Record holder David Rudisha who retained his olympic 800 metres title and Wayde van Niekerk, now the golden boy of South Africa and the world.
The South African sprinter broke Michael Johnson’s 17-year-old world record on Sunday in Rio de Janeiro, leaving two of the greatest one-lap runners of this era in his dust. Van Niekerk finished in 43.03 seconds — 0.15 seconds.
Thank you to everyone…— Wayde van Niekerk (@WaydeDreamer) August 15, 2016

Two days shy of his 30th birthday, Usain Bolt retained his Olympic 200m title and wrapped up the second part of his historic triple-triple bid.
All that’s left now is for him to win a third successive 4×100m title with his Jamaican team mates on Friday night, and exit stage on a high in typical Jamaican big stage style.
