Sport: Waitz’s old record was 8.31.75.

– It was surprisingly good. It was absolutely great after a period of very hard and tough training. It impressed me a lot, said Grøvdal’s coach Knut Jæger Hansen to NRK.

– It is rare that we see her so cut in her track races, said NRK expert Vebjørn Rodal.

Georgia Griffith from Australia won the race with 8.24.20.
