Mbulaeni Mulaudzi has different plans for Beijing

The world’s number one runner for the 800 meter event Mbulaeni Mulaudzi, has different plans for Beijing.

Mulaudzi said he has trouble competing in the big events, despite winning a silver in Athens, a gold at the International Association of Athletics Federations’ World Athletics in 2006 and a gold medal at the 2002 Commonwealth Games.

“My problem is that I have been sucked into running other people’s races,” he said.

“People know I like a fast race and so they keep the pace slow and in the past I have become confused and have been thrown off my stride.

“In the early days, when I was an unknown, it was not a problem. But now everyone knows who I am and they plan their races to stop me.”
