A thrilling men’s 800m was thehighlight of last night’s Cork City Sports at the CIT track.

With the line in sight, the race was anyone’s, but it was the American Michael Rutt who got there first in 1:47.57. Right on his heels were Andreas Bube of Denmark and Ireland’s Mark English, with Declan Murray a close fourth.

It was a useful blow-out for English who runs in the heats of the European U-23 800m tomorrow.
