Kojo Musah and Mathilde U. Kramer each set national records for Denmark over the 60 meters after navigating to the finish line first in the men’s and women’s respective events at a meeting in Randers, Denmark, on Sunday (30).

Musah, who returned to indoor competitions this year for the first time since 2019, was in top form in the men’s race, clocking a swift 6.56 seconds to improve the previous national record of 6.62 secs, set by Kristoffer Hari at the Tyson Invitational in 2020.

The 25-year-old got home on Sunday comfortably ahead of Tobias Gorgone Larsen who ran a PB of 6.79 for second place and third place Steffen Udengaard Knudsen (6.86 PB).

On the women’s side, Kramer posted a time of 7.31 seconds to narrowly lower the old mark by 0.01 seconds and just edged the previous national record holder Astrid Glenner-Frandsen in the process.

Glenner-Frandsen set the previous national 60m best of 7.32 secs in Toruń last March.
