News : Grovdal, World Record 5k running once a day
This past Saturday the norway Karoline Grovdal stopped the clock in a 5k in her country at 14:39, which means a new best world record in history in the distance. The problem is that, as happened with the recent brand of the British Beth Potter, it will probably not be approved by the World Athletics due to some irregularities. We will see. The fact is that the Nordic made that record in a meeting in Maarud Gård and they are four seconds less than the current world record of the Kenyan Beatrice Chepkoech.
Just in case, the Norwegian Federation published on social networks that all the requirements were met for it to be admitted by the WA, but it is not at all clear that this, very strict with the regulations, ends up approving it. Every effort is made to ensure the time is approved, but whatever the result, you (Karoline) are the best in the world and a role model for which we have a lot to be thankful for ”, the federation assures the Scandinavian country.
With the Adizero Adios Pro
Karoline, who wore the Adidas Adios Adizero Pro (Potter did it with the Asics Metaride also with a carbon plate a few weeks ago), is 30 years old and her specialty is the 3,000 obstacle test. He has won European medals (in 3,000 obstacles in Berlin’18 and in 10,000 in Amsterdam’16, both bronze) and was seventh in the Rio Games in the 5,000 test. His previous best 5k mark was 15:04, taking a whopping 25 seconds off his time.
According to what they say in Norway, Grovdal hardly does one training a day running and, above all, the load is done in mountain skiing, which brings us to that question that comes to the fore so much about whether such a high volume of kilometers a day with the impact and wear that that supposes.
