The Ingebrigtsen brothers are in amazing form.  Jakob and Filip Ingebrigtsen both clocked 1:46 on Tuesday over the two lap event,  lifetime bests.  Running at the Boysen Memorial in Oslo, a European Athletics Area Permit Meeting.

Paced by Andreas Roth through 400m in 52.5, Jakob won the race with a 1:46.44 ahead of Filip in 1:46.74. The 19-year-old improved his three-year-old lifetime best by nearly three seconds and also secured the family record at the distance.

“It’s fun. I have neither 1500m, mile nor 3000m records, but now I have 5000m, 2000m and 800m. I would say it’s a nice range to have family records in,” Jakob told NRK after the race.

Filip had to relinquish his family record in the 800m although his time of 1:46.74 also represented a significant lifetime best. His previous mark stood at 1:47.79.

“I considered for a long time whether I should start or not. It’s been up and down after the Impossible Games and I’ve felt pretty rotten. I really only loosened up a couple of days ago,” commented Filip.
