Ingebrigtsen, the gold medalist at the World Athletics Championships 2022 in Oregon, last month, successfully defended that title he won at the European Championships in Berlin in 2018 as a 17-year-old.

Ingebrigtsen, who ran 2:23.61 over the last 1000 meters, and had a spirited final 200 meters with Mohammed Katir of Spain described his title success as “special.”

“Everybody has expectations and you have to learn how to deal with it,” the Norwegian said. “I believe in myself and I believe in the things I have done before. It was amazing here today, it was a great race to be a part of.

Thanks to the audience, it is incredible. It feels great to be back and win, it is special. It brings back the memories of Berlin.” 

Katir collected the silver medal with a time of 13:22.98, while Italian Yemaneberan Crippa took home the bronze medal after crossing the finish line at 13:24.83.
