Moscow 1980 Athletics men 800m 2:14

"Sebastian Coe arrived at the 1980 Moscow Games as the world record holder and favourite at 800m. However, he ran what he called ""the worst race of my life"" and finished second behind Ovett. Six days later, a determined Coe redeemed himself in the 1500m, beating Ovett to take gold."
