Sport: The 2003 boy was by far the youngest in the final.

– It was a great experience, but of course I wanted to run faster than I did today. There is no doubt about it. I notice that the two previous races had cost more than I had hoped, Solbu told NRK after the finish.

The 20-year-old won his heat in the 1st round on Friday with a time of 1.46.16, and followed it up with 1.45.59 in Saturday’s semi-final.

– Now I am overjoyed. It was a completely wild experience. I thought about keeping calm and finishing like yesterday. I saw the winning time and thought maybe it would work. I am ecstatic. It is insaneSolbu told NRK after the semi-final.

Solbu has a personal best time of 1.45.55 in 800 metres.
