    Friday 8th September 2023 – Jakob Ingebrigtsen aged just 22 breaks the World 2000m record.

    At 16, he was the youngest person to run a sub 4 minute mile!

    He’s the current Olympic 1500m champion.
    He is the current (2023) 5000m World Champion having defended his 2022 title.

    He’s the European Champion at 1500m & 5000m from 2018 & 2022.
    [European Champion at 17 years old!]

    He’s the World Record holder at 2000m
    He holds the Worlds Best over 2 miles.
    He’s the World Record holder indoors over 1500m

    This guy will be the greatest ever.

    He reminds me so much of Seb Coe back in the late 70s and in to the late 80s.

    Don’t worry. I’m usually confused these days.
    Just think – yesterday I thought our game v Buxton had a referee in charge.
    Just shows how crazy I can get.

    … but …since you mention it on this side AA … v pleasing to see two Brits …Wightman and Kerr ..nick those two 1500m World Titles. Nothing taken away from Ingebritsen …he’s awesome ..but still gratifying for us GB Athletics fans.

    Will never be the greatest ever, apologies but that surely goes to some black person Kenyan or Ethiopian who we subconsciously racially don’t quite remember.

    Kip Keino? El Gharrouj? Said Aouita, Gebresselassie , Cheptegei …Quite a few candidates. Africans have tended to dominate Middle to Long distance ..but a different story on purely Middle distance. But why the race baiting? Lasse Viren? Coe, Ovett and Cram. It ain’t about race. Ingebritsen is up there in any generation on purley Middle distance.

    “Greatest ever”

    OK Longer … Gebressalassie
    Purely Middle ..currently Coe …Ingebritsen young enough to become the greatest ..would have been almost there but for Wightman and Kerr nicking those 2 1500 golds.

    5,000m / 10,000m double:

    Only Mo Farah has achieved the feat twice, in 2013 and 2015 – either side of which he performed the same feat in consecutive Olympic Games.

    So, who is / are currently the greatest of all time?

    I think we’ll find that Ingebrigtsen is come the day he retires

    Mo Farah, the man who was an also ran until he switched coaches to Salazar. Then Salazar get’s a doping related ban, Farah leaves him to get coached by Gary Lough, and returns back to being an also ran.

    Move along, nothing to see here!
