Cronje takes second over 800m in Belgium
- Updated: September 7, 2013
World Championships bronze medallist, Johan Cronje ended his Diamond League campaign with second spot in the 800-metre event in Belgium on Wednesday night, writes Mark Etheridge.
Cronje was only able to get a spot in the B-race at the Brussels event, despite his 1500m efforts in Moscow last month.
The only SA competitor on the night, he clocked 1min 45.85sec in a race won by US athlete Brandon Johnson (1:45.45).
Cronje’s personal best in the 800m is the 1:45.64 he ran in Berlin last week but he will be looking forward to Sunday when he will wrap up his season.
He races the 1500m at the World Challenge meeting in Rieti, Italy and the fact that that city is 400m above sea level may rule out top times in the middle-distance events.
