    far as we know, they're first trio ever, regardless of day

    This thread started with a specific question, but it looks like a good place for all Ingebrigtsen updates, especially this season for the younger, Jakob (dob 19 September 2000).

    As anyone reading probably already knows, he has already this season run 3:56.29 (Oslo 15 June) and 3:39.92 (Stockholm 18 June). Adding to this excellence at another distance, on 6 July, also in Oslo, he won a 5000 in 13:49.54. (His second attempt at this distance -- he ran 14:38.67 last summer.)

    Pretty good summer for a 16yo.

    Just in via Twitter---

    Jakob has run a 3000SC in 8:26.81!!

    That's probably more amazing than his Mile & 1500 times!
    (His 5K of 13:49 stands in 4th place, IMO!)

    For comparison, note that the US HSR is 8:47.04, run when Bailey Roth was about 18.5 years old!!

    ADD: Apparently this was Ingebrigtsen's FIRST-EVER Steeplechase!!!

    You do have to wonder how far into his 20's he'll be running at a decent level?

    And the 8:26.81 came on the heels of a 13:49.54 5000m PB he ran two nights before.

    Wow. I can see him making the final at WCs if selected. At 16.

    3:39/8:26/13:49 are not getting you to the Finals of the WCs. That is my opinion, of course, but I think that a majority, probably a very sizable majority of those here would concur. First, 3:39 is not that close to the qualifying mark and neither are the other two marks.

    8:26 is a new European U20 record, beating the mark of 8:29.50, set by Ralf Ponitzsch in 1976! And he's got two years remaining in the U20 category.

    And yes, it actually is a WC qualifying mark, too. The SC qualifier is just 8:32.00.
