The final pared down to 8runners who believed in their kick. Vebjørn Rodal became the leader with Wilson Kipketer at the end of the field. Rodal led through an easy pace 52.53 through the first lap. With 200 to go, Nico Motchebon moved to the front, covered by Kipketer, but Rodal didn't relinquish the lead. Kipketer timed his big burst for 70 metres before the finish, Rodal had no answer but held off Motchebon, the rest of the field fading away. Coming from behind Motchebon, Arthémon Hatungimana was able to gradually gain on Rodall, passing him just a step before the finish.

Wilson Kosgei Kipketer is a Danish former middle distance runner. He is the second fastest of all time over 800 meters, setting the world record and breaking his own record two more times all in 1997. He dominated the 800 m distance for a decade, remaining undefeated for a three-year period and running 8 of the 17 currently all-time fastest times. He won gold medals in three successive editions of the IAAF World Championships in Athletics. Though unable to compete in the 1996 Olympics near the peak of his career, he earned silver in 2000 and bronze in 2004. Kipketer's 800 meters world record stood for almost 13 years. It was surpassed on 22 August 2010, when David Rudisha beat it by 0.02 seconds, running 1:41.09.
