Timothy Cheruiyot from Kenya went strong in the men's 1500 meters. But Jakob Ingebrigtsen was lying in the backwater waiting for his place. Before the last lap, both Filip and Jakob Ingebrigtsen were just behind the lead and it was Jakob who had the most energy left. Jacob went back on Cheruiyot and challenged the Kenyan all the way to the finish line.
Cheruiyot finally came in at 3.28.45, four hundredths of his personal best. And only 0.23 seconds behind was Jakob Ingebrigtsen. 3.28.68 means a new European record for the 19-year-old.
- It's completely sick. It is a massive personal record. I was really nervous before today, says Ingebrigtsen to SVT Sport.
Kalle Berglund came in 10th in 3.35.34 after a struggling recharge with injuries.
- I'm too cowardly in the middle of the race. Six weeks ago, I did not think I would compete this summer. But in light of everything, I am still quite satisfied, says Kalle Berglund to SVT Sport.
