Nothing psyches me up quite like a competitive race where with 100meters to go nothing is decided and everyone is a contender. This is the 1988 Olympic Games Men’s 800 meters final and it’s a dusey! Lead changes, fast splits, pushing, shoving and all the tactics inbetween make every second of this final exciting. The race was eventually won in 1:43 by Paul Ereng of Kenya. The commentators accidentally call the win initially to Kiprotich because of the confusion but they realize their mistake and apologize, an honest mistake. Also for some added fun tune in to about 6:40 and catch a glimpse of an epic tumble by the camera man trying to get the money shot of the new Olympic change.
