CRAZY 800M RUN in Rome Diamond League 2017 (Read the description below)

 

Crazy things happened in Rome Diamond League men’s 800m race. Job Kinyor of Kenya was assigned as a pacemaker. When he realized no one was close to him, he decided to go for the win, but runs out of gas with only 100m left and everyone else passes him. Kinyor showed a great example of why going all out does not work in a distance race.

Also, one of the favorites of the race, Nijel Amos, goes down just before 1 lap to go and had to settle for 2nd to last, thanks to the pace maker, Kinyor, for finishing the race and not making Amos come in last place.
