Karsten Warholm, a 25-year-old Norwegian track and field athlete, has established a new world record in the 400-meter hurdles. This occurred at the athlete’s home stage of the Diamond League in Oslo.
In 46.70 seconds, Warholm crossed the distance. It’s worth noting that the 400-meter hurdles world record had been held for over 30 years. Kevin Young, a US representative who ran the distance in 46.78 seconds at the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona, installed it (Spain).
The Norwegian took first place in the Diamond League’s home stage. Alison Dos Santos of Brazil came in second with a time of 47.38 seconds, while Yasmani Kopello of Turkey came in third with a time of 47.38 seconds (48.86). Karsten Warholm is a two-time world champion (2017, 2019) and European champion in 2018.
