Sport: It was just enough for a semi-final place. Grimerud and the Swiss Ricky Petrucciani had the slowest time (both 45.90) ​​of the 14 who qualified. At the same time, 14 hundredths of a second separated the fastest of those who did not progress.

– I was prepared that I would have to run to the max today and record a time around “pers” in order to move on. I think it went well, Grimerud told NRK.

Incredibly, he has run exactly 45.90 three times in his career and thinks it is time to improve on that time.

– The first time it was fun. It’s fun now too, but there may well be another time soon, he smiled.

Håvard Bentdal Ingvaldsen is directly qualified for the semi-finals. He finished sixth in the WC last year.
