Kenya's David Rudisha claimed a second world 800-meter title with a smart tactical race in Beijing Tuesday.Rudisha went out fast to nail down point, going through the first lap in 54.15sec.Tula sat in fourth behind Kenyan Ferguson Rotich and Kszczot at 200 meters, all three fighting for two podium spots as Rudisha opened up and put in one final burst for the line.Tula's trademark electric last 30-meter finish came too late, not even able to catch the Pole, with Rudisha clean home.Rudisha, who set an amazing world record of 1:40.91 when winning gold in the London Games, was sidelined for most of the 2013 season with a knee injury that saw him sit out the Moscow worlds.He may be yet to break 1:43 this season, but Rudisha proved the perfect tactician on the night to see off any contenders. Kenyan policeman Nicholas Bett charged down the home straight to win the world championship 400-meter hurdles final.
