2019 RunBlogRun Podcasts: Deep thoughts on the Bislett Oslo Diamond League Meeting (13 June 2019)


The Bislett Oslo Meeting was held on 13 June 2019. It was one of the most traditional summer meetings of the European circuit. The ghosts of Ron Clarke, Jim Hogan, Horace Ashenfelter, Gunder Hagg, Fannie Blankers Koen, who all competed in Oslo are there. The fans in Oslo are something special. The stadium was built in 1917, and the focus was speed skating and track and field.

Some big performances here, with full results: DLM-OSL19_13062019.txt. Big events with Christian Coleman in the 100m, Sam Kendricks in the PV, the big womens' steeplechase, the big high jump with Maria Lasitskene, and the big win by Sydney McLaughlin.
