Norwegian Jakob Ingebrigtsen broke the 21-year-old European record in the 5,000 metres event at the Florence Diamond League meet on Thursday. He finished in the time of 12:48.45. It is a world-leading time for 2021 and puts him in a good position towards next month’s Tokyo Olympic Games.

The previous record was 12:49.71 by Mohammed Mourhit of Belgium from 2000.

It was the first time that Ingebrigtsen had run the distance under 13 minutes.

“Now I have to be able to win a medal, too. If I am able to win against the best runners, then I can also win at the Olympics. I am always excited to race. I did not expect this time and this record,” said Ingebrigtsen, post-race.

His previous best was 13:02.03 from nearly two years ago in London. The youngest of three running brothers is also the fastest in the family, however, all three are elite-level. Filip, Henrik, and Jakob are all trained by their father Gjert. Jakob became the youngest person to run the mile (1609m) under four minutes in May of 2017, he finished in the time of 3:56.29.

The meet record is held by current marathon world record holder (2:01:39) Eliud Kipchoge of Kenya at 12:46.53 from 2004.

Finishing in second place was Ethiopian Hagos Gebrhiwet in the time of 12:49.02. He owns a personal best of 12:45.82 from 2018. Third was Canadian record holder Mo Ahmed who clocked a 12:50.12. Spanish runner Katir Mohamed was nearly half a second back of Ahmed at 12:50.79 and running sub-13 for the first time in a new personal best was Canadian Justyn Knight with a 12:51.93 for fifth place. Finishing six was Joshua Cheptegei.

Seven finished in under 13-minutes. Fourteen of the 15 finishers clocked under 13:30.

Ahmed from St. Catharines, ON owns five Canadian records, indoors and outdoors. His best over 5000m is 12:47.20. He also has the 10,000m record of 26:59.35. He is the only Canadian to run under the 13 and 27-minute benchmarks for the two distances. Until this track meet, he was the only Canadian to run under 13 in the 5000m. Knight now joins him as a potential medal threat for the Tokyo Olympic Games.

Cheptegei from Uganda is a three-time world record holder in the 5000m, 10,000m and 5K road event. His best over the 12.5-lap race is 12:35.36.
