Yep. :)  Steira also won the 5000m in 2009 and Astrid Uhrenholdt Jacobsen has a bronze medal on the 5000m. Jacobsen also starts in the 5000m this year. 

By the way, Johaug's personal best is 33:36 (10km), but that is set on road, so she is probably faster on track

 

Johaug won in 30:20,87 and lapped everyone twice :p

Are you entirely sure? Because that'd be insane :d Only 20 women in history have gone under 30:20 so I'm having a major case of

Right! Ingrid Kristiansen's NR is 30:13,74 so Johaug would have set the house on fire with that time. It's 32:20 indeed (but I took this result from Polish media so they're the ones to blame). My search of the Norwegian media has the 2nd place finisher at 34:47 so yeah, she did lap her twice ;)

 

And she was 20 secs. faster than Steira's 2014 result (what else is new).

:LUX Bob Bertemes threw 22.22m in men's shot put at a meeting in Luxembourg yesterday! :yikes:

https://www.iaaf.org/athletes/luxembourg/bob-bertemes-266203

This throw makes him the 20th best male shot putter of all time (best = longest thow by an athlete). It also makes him the 7th best European male shot putter of all time! :bowdown:

The only other European who is better than him, and not from the 80's, is :POL Michal Haratyk with 22.32m. 

As many have said about this season in men's shot put, wow!

No, she is still half a minute from the WCH Standard, and there are already 27, (29 to be precise), athletes that have achieved the WCH Standard. The target number is 27, so no room for her. 

But she might start in next year's ECH in Paris on the 10,000m, and with many of the best Europeans focusing on the Olympics, she could have chance to win a medal. Of course this depend on who are actually going to compete in next year's ECH because she is nowhere near a medal if the best starts.
