News : Halvorsen, the new Norwegian pearl that already breaks Ingebrigtsen records
Norway barely exceeds five million inhabitants. It does not have many athlete licenses, but instead has the best in the world in some modalities. Karsten Warholm or the Ingebrigtsen brothers (especially the youngest, Jakob) are real stars with brands capable of competing with any athlete on the face of the earth. A sign that the raw material that exists is worked in an excellent way. The last pearl of the Nordic country is barely 15 years old, but it seems that it is on the way to following the meteoric career of these two compatriots that we have indicated.
Some brutal wickers
It’s about Andreas Fjeld Halvorsen, who just broke the National Record for his age in the 3,000 meters by snatching it from child prodigy Jakob Ingebrigtsen. Halvorsen stopped the clock at 8:16:06, six seconds faster than the youngest of the brothers did at the time. It will not be easy for him to follow in the footsteps of his idol Andreas Fjeld, but it seems that the wickers are there and they look excellent. The boy, for example, ran a 1,500 in 3:56:86 in March after a five-month break and was proclaimed national champion of his cross age last October.
Also, last September achieved the National Record of his age also in the distance of 600 meters stopping the clock in 1:23:36.
