World-record holder David Rudisha of Kenya beat rival Abubaker Kaki of Sudan to win his first world championship title in the 800 meters with yet another dominating performance.

Rudisha took the lead early and never saw anyone threaten him again as he finished in 1:43.91. Kaki, a two-time indoor world champion, finished in 1:44.41 and former Olympic 800 champion Yuriy Borzakovskiy of Russia took bronze in 1.44.49.

Rudisha has now won 32 races in a row dating back to August 2009.
