Sport: There was also Awet Nftalem Kibrab, who ran in 13.25.48.

Mohamed Ismail from Djibouti won in 12:56.43, while Sweden’s Andreas Almgren took 2nd place with 12:59.82. In doing so, he set a Swedish record and met both the EC and Olympic requirements.

Almgren was already Olympic-ready in his favorite distance of 10,000 meters.

Ingebrigtsen fell off the field early on. He passed the EC requirement last year, but Jakob Ingebrigtsen, Narve Gilje Nordås, Magnus Tuv Myhre, Kibrab and Per Svela have also passed the requirement, and Norway can field only four runners in the EC.

Jakob Ingebrigtsen and Nordås have already been selected.
