Sammy Tangui as pace maker?
hey guys. just wondering why david rudisha relies on tangui as his pace setter for the first 400. looking at his stats, neither his 400 or 800 is notable at all. in fact, rudisha told him to split at just under 49, with his PR being 47.xx. is it because he has a good feel for times or what?

If Rudisha wants a certain person to be his rabbit, then he must feel comfortable that he is reliable.
A rabbit must be able to pull the racers through very close to the target time, if they are too fast or too slow he will not be getting paid to rabbit any more races.
I assume Tangui is able to know when he is running 49 for the 400, and can do it reliably.
