On August 29, 2019, in Zurich, Karsten Warholm set a European record of 46.92. His win in Doha in October 2019 was exciting and just showed the amazing talent this young Norwegian has, and how well his move to coach Leif Olaf Alnes , has been excellent.

OSLO (NOR): World 400m hurdles champion Karsten Warholm says he now regrets ripping off his vest in his winning celebration at the Stockholm Diamond League last year. The Norwegian said: “Sometimes you do things you regret.” On the Wanda Diamond League Callroom screened on Facebook and YouTube, he said: “I had been on a diet, and I was really proud of the results, and I was showing off. That was a little bit embarrassing. I remember seeing the video afterwards, and I totally ignored the flower girl, I was so caught up with myself. It was shameful!” Warholm is set to compete in the Bislett Impossible Games in Oslo next month in the 300 m Hurdles. “It’s good to get motivation and go back to training. It’s nice to have something to look forward to,” he said. “The Impossible Games give me just what I need to get to work and have that edge in training, knowing something big will happen in the near future.”
