Athletics Stats: Winners of Oslo Diamond League 2023

The diamond league meet in Oslo also known as Bislett Games is the fifth meeting that took place in the city of Oslo. The event included a total of 14 competitions (diamond league status) which were distributed across men’s (7) and women’s (7) categories. The fifth leg of the tournament saw many important athletes in the middle of the competition. However, in spite of these regular faces, many new candidates emerged in the middle. The Diamond League will now shift its course to Lausanne which will take place on June 30, 2023. The Diamond League will conclude on September 17, 2023, with the final taking place in Hayward Stadium, Eugene, Oregon (United States).

Highlights from the Diamond League Oslo 2023

The diamond league in Oslo witnessed a remarkable end to a great night of track and field as the two Norwegian stars, Warholm and Ingebrigtsen, thrilled crowd at the Bislett stadium. The key highlight has to be their performance without any doubt. Warholm ran the fourth-fastest 400m hurdles time in history (his second-fastest, behind his world record). While, Jakob Ingebrigtsen broke the European record in the 1500m. There were also wins for world record holders Yulimar Rojas, Wayde van Niekerk, and Mondo Duplantis. Concurrently, a special mention in the tournament will also go for 17-year-old Birke Haylom of Ethiopia, who set a new women’s world under-20 record for the dream mile.

Miltiadis Tentoglou, the gold medalist of Tokyo was astounded by two athletes who snatched away his gold medal. The men’s long jump champion Miltiadis Tentoglou faced a rare defeat from Switzerland’s Simon Ehammer and Marquis Dendy of the United States who claimed the gold and silver respectively. Another disheartening performance was from the American Chase Ealey. The shot putter could not dish out an outstanding performance yet again in the fifth leg of the competition.

The woman’s 100 m was dominated by the meet record and the world record of the Ivorian Jose Talou. Heading into the finals of the women’s discus throw, Bislett got a surprise leader from Netherlands Jorinde van Klinken. Jordine clinched the gold while silver went to Valarie and bronze to Sandra Perkovic. Elsewhere, Usain Bolt’s 200m meeting record was broken by Erriyon Knighton. Knighton cruised to victory at the Bislett Games 2023 (Oslo Diamond League), clocking a meeting record of 19.77 seconds. This record was the American’s best so far in the 2023 season. Coming second and third were Reynier Mena and Joseph Fahnbulleh from Cuba and Liberia.
