After quashing the competition in a tactical master class to return to the throne of world 800m running on Tuesday, even better news awaits record holder, David Rudisha with the impending birth of his second child with wife, Lizzy Naanyu.
It will be quite a week of celebration in the Rudisha household as he prepares to welcome the sibling to his first born daughter, Charlene, born January 31, 2010 by his high school sweetheart whom he wed in a private ceremony at the back end of that year.
When he spoke on Tuesday he said, “My wife was due today but I have spoken with her short while ago and I’m anxiously waiting for the good news. We are crossing fingers and this will be a special week for me.” This was after putting together a 1:45.84 at the Beijing Bird’s Nest to win back the crown he last bagged four years ago in South Korea. Confirmation is yet to be made about the birth of his baby.
