Girma challenges Ingebrigtsen

Jakob Ingebrigtsen returns to the tartan to run a 1,500 after breaking the European record (3:27.95) in Oslo just 15 days ago. The Norwegian ogre has between eyebrows the 3:26.00 that Hicham El Guerrouj has held since 1998 as a world record and every time the 22-year-old prodigy faces that distance, the option must not be ruled out. In the Lausanne Diamond League (today, 8:00 p.m. in Vamos), the Olympic champion will also have a posh and very uncomfortable rival, Lamecha Girma. The Ethiopian, also 22 years old, is one of the great revelations of recent times after beating the planetary mark of 3,000 obstacles (7:52.11) at the beginning of the month in Paris… in addition to breaking the 3,000 indoor mark in winter (7 :23.81).

In the Swiss city the 1,500 will focus the spotlights but there will also be a big 5,000 with Joshua Cheptegei, Selemon Barega or Telahun Haile Bekele; a beautiful battle in the women’s 100 hurdles between the Olympic champion, the Puerto Rican Jasmine Camacho-Quinn, and the world record holder, the Nigerian Tobi Amusan; the dutch Femke Bol in 400 hurdles, the American pitcher Ryan Crouser in weight… and Quique Llopis, the only Spaniard present, who makes his debut at the Diamond in his test, the 110 hurdles.
