Ingebrigtsen another gold - rose 1500 meters

Ingebrigtsen another gold – rose 1500 meters

– God, what a trick. He excelled himself and crushed others. Just when you thought he didn’t have another gear, he adds one more, says SVT sports expert Christian Olsen.

After 200 meters, Ingebrigtsen took the lead and set a more consistent pace, roasting the others and taking the win effortlessly. In the WC, he was surprised and rushed down by British Jack Wightman (who only ran 800 mi EC). He made sure tonight was avoided when the races were postponed after a downpour.

– I felt that the Spaniard (Mario Garcia) was close and touched my legs, which annoyed me in the middle of the race, but I had good control and had a lot left to give at the end, says Ingbrigsen.

Big brother Henrik with support

In the stands, big brother Henrik was just as amused as WC.

– It was pretty good with a championship record of 3.32 after a single race, right? Henrik tells NRK.

The silver medal went to Spain’s Mario Garcia, followed by Great Britain’s Jake Hayward.

On Tuesday, Norway won gold in the 5000m after a similar performance.

– I felt good all week and let’s see if there’s another race before I put away my spiked shoes for the season, thinks Inkbrickson.

21-year-old Ingebrigtsen claimed her eighth international outdoor medal in track (Olympic, WC and EC) and continued her impressive double from Berlin 2018.
