Michael Rimmer looked relatively comfortable in the heats of the 800m recording 1.47.64 behind world record holder, David Rudisha (Kenya). He looked distinctly at ease in the semis, though, running out fifth(1.47.70) behind new star Nijel Amos of Botswana. For a moment he appeared out of the competition but scraped through to the final on a fastest time. The final proved a classic with the young Amos outsprinting Rudisha in 1.45.18. Michael was a disappointing seventh in 1.47.19 and will rue the fact a medal winning time was within his scope even in this disappointing season. Will Michael now run the Europeans?
