Norwegian athlete Jakob Ingebrigtsen has broken the world record in the 1500 meters at indoor competitions in Liévin, France. The 21-year-old Scandinavian running sensation recorded 3.30.60 and dived below the old global top time that Ethiopian Samuel Tefera had set at 3.31.04 in 2019.
Ingebrigtsen won gold in the 1500 meters at the Tokyo Summer Games in an Olympic record of 3.28.32. He was unapproachable in Liévin and was far behind the rest of the race. Tefera, who lost his world record, finished second at just over 3 seconds (3.33.70).
Menno Vloon finished third in the World Indoor Tour competition in the pole vault with a height of 5.81 metres. De Zaankanter is already certain of participating in the World Indoor Championships in March in Belgrade. He jumped the bar three times in Liévin at 5.91 meters. American Christopher Nilsen was the only one to reach that height.
The Italian sprinter Lamont Marcell Jacobs, the Olympic champion in the 100 meters, won the 60 meters in Liévin in 6.50. He was just ahead of American Cravon Charleston (6.52).
