LIEVIN (FRA): After breaking the first senior world record of his career in Lievin, Jakob Ingebrigtsen will now turn his focus to the World Indoor Championships in Belgrade from 18-20 March. “I was supposed to run the world record last year, even if it wasn’t the main goal then. I want to improve and run faster than I have done before. It’s everyone’s dream to win championships and beat records. This is my first world record, hopefully, more will come but of course, it is a big dream come true…of course, first of all I want to improve my own times but obviously beating a world record is a big achievement for me. I will always remember this, it feels amazing. My next goal is to participate in Belgrade and having this record is a big advantage to win championships,” he said and confirmed no more competitions before World Indoors.
