Sport: Instead of the EC and 10,000 meters, for which she has not yet met the requirement either, she plans to run the 5,000 meters on Friday 7 June and the half marathon on 9 June – she is considered a strong medal candidate at both distances.

– That could be a fun combo, says Grøvdal, who specifies that she will make a final decision after the first race.

She recently won the New York half marathon in a time of 1.09.09.
