David Rudisha

  27 August 2014: IAAF Diamond League, Birmingham

We talk to two Olympic champions and one former world champion competing at last Sunday's IAAF Diamond League meeting in Birmingham.  Kenya's David Rudisha (above) recalls setting a new world record in winning the 2012 Olympic 800m title and talks about the challenge of racing new rising stars such as Botswana's Commonwealth Games champion, Nijel Amos.  We also hear from Grenada's 2012 400m Olympic champion Kirani James on his hopes of beating Michael Johnson's long-standing world record and 2011 world high jump champion Jesse Williams from the US on his recovery from injury and hopes for the 2015 World Championships in Beijing.
