Oslo DL — Ingebrigtsen Now No. 6 Miler Ever

OSLO NORWAY, June 16—The Dream Mile at the Bislett Games lived up to its billing this year, as Jakob Ingebrigtsen made a strong attempt on the European Record for the distance, with Australia’s Olli Hoare making an actual race of it.

After the pacers took them through the 400 (56.01) and 800 (1:53.30), the Norwegian took over, with only Hoare and Britain’s Jake Wightman in close pursuit. At 1200 in 2:49.38, Wightman started to lose contact.

Hoare kept the pressure on through the backstretch, when Ingebrigtsen summoned another gear and began to pull away. Chasing the clock, neither relented in the stretch. Ingebrigtsen crossed in a world-leading 3:46.46, narrowly missing Steve Cram’s European Record of 3:46.32 set at this meet 37 years ago — a World Record at the time that stood for 8 years. He becomes No. 6 ever at the four-lapper. Hoare’s national record 3:47.48 moves him to No. 13 ever. Wightman held on for 3rd in a PR 3:50.30.

“It felt great,” said Ingebrigtsen. “I was ready to run fast and was happy to do that and to win. Some work needs to be done before the World Championships but I will work hard to be in better shape for the World Championships.”

Americans fared relatively well in a pair of 5000s. First came the women’s race, in which Dawit Seyaum hit a PR 14:25.84 in outkicking fellow Ethiopians Gudaf Tsegay (14:26.69) and Letesenbet Gidey (14:26.92) in an event struck by a pounding rainstorm. Alicia Monson ran with the leaders much of the distance, finishing 5th in 14:31.11, a time that moved her to No. 3 among Americans.

The men’s race featured another Ethiopian 1-2-3, led by Telahun Haile’s 13:03.51. Joe Klecker stayed with the Ethiopians until the final stretch, managing 4th in 13:04.92.

The 400H produced the speed highlights on the damp track. On the women’s side, Femke Bol took charge early and dominated, her 52.61 winning by more than 2 seconds.

In the men’s race, Alison dos Santos, with a slight lead over Estonia’s Rasmus Mägi at halfway, produced a stunning final drive to win by 10m in 47.26 as Mägi clocked 48.51. Said the victorious Brazilian, “I ran fast but we expected more. For sure, I am in the 46 shape. Every race we run is unique and of course, if Warholm was here, it would be better.”

Devon Allen, the hottest high hurdler of the moment, had to break his just-made pledge to run every 110H final under 13 seconds in the face of a 1.2 headwind. Instead, he settled for a 13.22 win over Spain’s Asier Martinez (13.30), saying, “Every race I run is to win. And I want to run fast. As you see, the 13.22 in these conditions is not too bad. There was rain, the headwind. Definitely, I can execute better. I have to see the video and check where did I mess up.”

A snappy 800 saw Keely Hodgkinson, heart set on a fast time, go out in 57.30 and hold on for what was, for her, a mildly disappointing 1:57.71, as Laura Muir couldn’t quite challenge with her 1:58.09. Said the winner, “I was fairly happy but I wanted faster; a win is a win though.”

Mondo Duplantis triumphed over a wet runway to clear an outdoor world-leading 19-9 (6.02), good for the win over Sondre Guttormsen’s 19-¼ (5.80).

In the women’s shot, Chase Ealey nabbed her second DL win this season with an outdoor PR 66-½ (20.13). Explained the American, “I had a pretty big foul at the beginning so that rustled me up and made me reset to throw over 20m.”

In the women’s discus, Sandra Perković handed Valarie Allman her first loss of the season, 219-3 (66.82) to 216-3 (65.91).
