Two-time Olympic gold medalist David Rudisha, and one of the best middle-distance runners in the world, survived a horrifying plane crash on Saturday and is grateful to be alive...
quote:

Rudisha, a native of Kenya, told the Nation newspaper his plane took off after he attended the annual Maasai Olympics event at the wildlife sanctuary in Kajiado South-East Kenya when disaster struck.

DR told the outlet about seven or eight minutes into the flight the engine malfunctioned, resulting in the plane going down in the Imbirkiana area in Kajiado.

"It was a scary episode where you hold your heart in your hand as you pray to God," Rudisha said. "The pilot did an incredible job to keep the plane afloat and stable for long."

800m in 1:40.9!! Unless you're a Track aficionado, you have no idea what a superhuman feat it is to run 800m in that time. It is truly a mind-blowing time.

His London Olympic performance was truly balls of steel stuff. He ran it like the best in the world should run Olympic finals.
