News : Adrián Ben’s tremendous finish at the Doha 800
He already demonstrated in this same city, in Doha, at the 2019 World Cup, that he is a race athlete, who runs without complexes, without fear. The young 22-year-old Galician athlete, who ran a few days ago in Soria at 1.50.58, made us enjoy in an incredible way and who alongside stars such as Amel Tuka, the Kenyan Kinyamal and Rotich or the British Rowden has not had respects.
The 800 of this second meeting of the Diamond League in the Qatari capital was great. Adrián Ben has left on street 1 and during the first meters he has closed the group. In fact, it gave the impression that it could get off the hook, but nothing like that. He had legs and had in mind to make a tremendous ending. As always, tactical and irreverent, he has been overtaking athletes until he rides the Bosnian legend Amel Tuka.
A caste ending
In the final stretch he has been able to surpass the Qataris Hairane and Hassan and the South African Tshite and He has finished with his tongue out achieving the second best mark of his life (the first was also in Doha, a talisman city for him) with 1.45.10. Lowering the Olympic minimum for the second time and confirming that he is very strong and that he can give us many joys in Tokyo.
Be careful with the Galician because We are in May and he is capable of lowering that best record of 1.44.97 achieved in the World Championship two years ago.. For now, four points in a whole Diamond League for him.
