David Rudisha

Category “Fair Play for Peace”

Two olympic and two world gold medals in the 800.

An athlete by background, his father won the 4x400 silver medal  in Mexico in 1968. David is a member of Massai. He is the greatest  800-metre runner ever. Moreover, he is an Arsenal supporter.  But there's an Irish missionary - Father Colm O'Connell - behind David's success, who has trained Kenyan runners for so many decades.

"The greatest 800-metre runner ever and... maybe the most handsome man in his type of sport"



Top -level sportsmen and women have a responsibility that goes above and beyond honouring their team, their sport or the nation they represent.
They are the personification of the very spirit and essence of sport.
