MOSCOW (AP)

Mohammed Aman of Ethiopia won the men's 800-meter gold medal Tuesday at the world championships.

The 19-year-old indoor world champion surged ahead in the home stretch to beat Nick Symmonds of the United States. Aman had his best time of the season — 1 minute, 43.31 seconds.

Symmonds finished in 1:43.55 and Ayanleh Souleiman of Djibouti took the bronze in 1:43.76.

David Rudisha, the Olympic gold medalist and defending world champion, has been out injured for most of the season.

Aman won his last half dozen races and has beaten Rudisha twice.

“I wanted the world to know that my country, Ethiopia, has always won with determination and heroism.”
Abebe Bikila,

What an impressive effort! Wow!
Mohamed Aman just wrote his own history by becoming the first ever Ethiopian 800 meter world champion.
He is young, smart, down to earth well disciplined guy who can make and write more history.
When I saw him beat David rudisha not only once but twice, I knew Mohamed Aman was the real deal.
One can also tell what a great work ethics of commitment and devotion to continuous hard training this big event of world championship demands.
I expect him to put his eyes and focus on Hicham al guruge’s mile and 1,500 meter world record.
Good luck!
Way to go Mohamed Aman, Z man!!!!

we thank nazret.com for posting this event although you skipped our novel Ethiopians victory in the last win of Silver Jelani against Mohammed Farah which was also spectacular. I just wonder what is going on this website. Is it not time to move on? Time to think about being the hope of the future!!

Anyways, congradulations, you made Ethiopia in the ranks of those well advanced countries and Jamaica who produce the fastest runners of the world including Bolton.

Great win, you make Ethiopians proud!
Even thou he is shorter than his counterparts I see some qualities that could be similar to Bolton.
Bolton wins because he is fast and he has a longer stride than others.
Aman runs with his chest upfront. Lowers his body, automatically increasing the length of his stride.
Aman has speed and could try the 200.
Perhaps in the near future we will see him pitted against Bolton.
I hope they make it Pay for View. The Run of the Century. David against Goliah. I guess we know that David will win.

Graduations Mohammed. You are a hero and a true Ethiopian!

A trailblazer on short distances. Hopefully a lot of young Ethiopian will follow his example.
