Article source:

Reigning Olympic champion and World Record holder in 800m David Rudisha will have his final test before Glasgow Commonwealth games as he will face a high quality 800m field at the Glasgow Grand prix Diamond League meeting this Saturday.

“The Glasgow Grand Prix will give me the best possible preparation for the Commonwealth Games. I know the field will include not only the best athletes in the Commonwealth, but the world too. I know I will have to perform at my best to secure another victory.” said Olympic Champion Rudisha.

Last year Rudisha suffered a knee injury and on his comeback race on May 31 in Eugene Diamond League lacking strength in the last 100m he faded from  the 1st place to 7th cloking 1:44.87. Two weeks later on June 14 at the New York Diamond League Rudisha took a very confident win with a season's best time 0f 1:44.63.After the New York meet Rudisha returned home to Iten Kenya to prepare for the Commonwealth games and the rest of the season.

This weekend is the last 800m race for the Kenyan before Commonwealth games. The Commonwealth games track and field competition is scheduled from July 27 to August 3.
