The men's 800 metres at the 2013 World Championships in Athletics was held at the Luzhniki Stadium on 10–13 August.[1]

In the final, Duane Solomon characteristically took out the pace at just about 50 seconds. Uncharacteristically, second place was occupied by his teammate Nick Symmonds, known for his come from behind tactics. On the final lap the two provided a wall for the rest of the field to get around. Solomon held the lead into the final straight with Symonds about to pounce. Mohammed Aman was behind Solomon in a box pinned in by Ayanleh Souleiman. Souleiman slowed as Symonds took off, the door opened Aman took off in chase of Symonds passing him on the outside 20 meters before the finish. As Solomon slowed Souleiman was the next fastest to the finish to pick up bronze. Aman's 1:43.31 is a new Russian soil all comers record.[2]
