Jakob Ingebrigtsen and Shericka Jackson aims for Diamond League Final Double

Ingebrigtsen, who on Saturday, shattered European and Diamond League records in the Bowerman Mile, returns to the track today. He narrowly missed breaking the world record, and the Norwegian athlete is eager to compete in the men’s 3000m race.
“Obviously, I was here to run the mile,” Ingebrigtsen said. “I’m jumping in the 3000m because I got the opportunity.” He added that he would, “try to prepare as good as I can, and we’ll see tomorrow.”
