Jakob Ingebrigtsen out with throat infection

A disappointment. Jakob Ingebrigtsen, who came to Barcelona to try to beat the 5 km road world record in the Cursa dels Nassosdid not go running in Barcelona. At the last minute, a throat infection deprived Barcelona of enjoying the Norwegian galactic. Neither did his brother Filip start and only the third, Henrik (eighth), ran.

In the absence of the Viking, the Ethiopian Adesu Girma claimed victory (13:25) ahead of Ilias Fifa (13:26), who was returning to the event after a four-year ban for drug trafficking. Far away was the 5 km record of Berihu Aregawi (12:49, last year).

In the women’s race, the Ethiopian shone Ejegayehu Taye, who set a time of 14:21, close to his own world record of 14:19.
