Ethiopian, Hagos Gebrhiwet, ran 12:36.72, the second-fastest 5000-metre result in history. The historical performance happened at the Oslo, Norway-based Bislett Games as part of the Wanda Diamond League on Thursday.

The race

Fellow Ethiopian, Yomif Kejelcha, was challenging the field late in the race. Over the final four laps, he was cruising hard in second place. He ended up finishing second with a new personal best of 12:38.95. He is now the fourth-fastest 5000m runner in history.

Ugandan Jacob Kiplimo took third in a new pb of 12:40.96.  

Twelve of 19 set personal bests, and 13 ran sub 13 minutes.

Eight-time national record holder, Luis Grijalva of Guatemala ran a near two-second best at 12:50.58 to finish sixth.

World record holder Joshua Cheptegei of Uganda only clocked a 12:52.94 result, not to his best standard, he finished ninth.

Twenty-eight-year-old Swede, Andreas Almgren, ran sub-13 for his first time, by nearly 10 seconds clocking a 12:50.94 performance. He is a six-time national record holder.

The near-record run

Historically, only Cheptegei, has run faster than Gebrhiwet did on Thursday at 12:35.36. It is the world record which bettered the 16-year-long record run by Ethiopian great Kenenisa Bekele at 12:37.35 before super shoes.

In August of 2020, Cheptegei clocked his best performance during the Diamond League meet in Monaco. The now 27-year-old holds two world records, one world best-known time and two national records. His 26:11 from 2020 in Spain is also a world record. Both of his 5000m and 10,000m times eclipsed Bekele’s long-standing world records. Bekele’s 10,000m world record was 26:17.53.

Other races at Bislett

Just six days removed from competing in the 2024 Prefontaine Classic in Eugene, Oregon — also a Diamond League meet — Jakob Ingebrigtsen, on home soil, won the 1500m race. Diving at the line he took the win in 3:29.74 to Kenyan Timothy Cheruiyot’s 3:29.77. Aseddine Habz of France took third in 3:30.80.

While Ingebrigtsen led for most of the field behind pacers, and after they dropped off, it was Cheruiyot who tried to make a move with 200m to go. Ingebrigtsen held strong. During the final 60m, Cheruiyot pushed again. As they hit the finish line Ingebrigtsen dove to take the win. across the line to try to hold on to the win. 

Georgie Griffith from Australia set a new Australian and Oceania area record in the 3000m clocking 8:24.20. Likina Amebaw of Ethiopia and Australia’s Jessica Hull went 2-3 in 8:24.29 and 8:25.82, respectively. It was a new pb for Amebaw and Hull’s second-fastest performance over the distance. On March 2, in Glasgow, she clocked an 8:24.39 performance, which is an Oceania indoor record. Hull currently holds five other Oceania records.

In the men’s 400m hurdles, hometown favourite, and Olympic and World Championships gold medallist Karston Warholm was shocked as he was beaten by Brazil’s Alison Dos Santos, 46.63 to 46.70. Kyron McMaster of the British Virgin Islands took third in 48.49.

Dos Santos holds the current South American record at 46.29. He set that at the 2022 World Athletics Championships in Eugene, OR at Hayward Field where he won gold. Warholm holds the world record at 45.94. He is the Tokyo Olympic champion and a three-time World Champion. The Oslo crowd fell silent when Warholm was defeated by the 23-year-old Brazilian.

But the crowd was delighted and very loud for the Ingebrigtsen-Cheruiyot showdown.
