Prize rewards in athletics NM 10.-12. September is not of the same caliber. but Jakob Ingebrigtsen is highly regarded, similar to last year when the tournament was held in Bergen. This year’s NM, like last year’s NM, has been moved from an earlier date, which is why it crashed with the Diamond League final – thus Norway’s Olympic gold medalist NM program is being prepared in the 1500m.
He doesn’t have to rush from Gardermoen to Kristiansand to reach qualifying on Friday night, and goes straight to the final field Saturday night where he “qualified” his 13th – as stated in the organizer’s latest update on Monday: “12 runners advance. to the final of the trial period.
