Larry’s Deep Thoughts:

In the Oslo Meeting on May 30, there was this terrific race over 400 meter hurdles.

Karsten Warholm, the world record holder, Olympic champion, and three-time World Champion, was opening his 2024 season at 400m hurdles.

The race was pretty typical of Karsten Warholm, except, between hurdles 9 and 10, Alison Dos Santos, the 2022 World Champion, caught up with Karsten and put some pressure on him.

This time, Karsten buckled a bit, hitting hurdle ten, just enough of a slip that Alison Dos Santos could grab. Dos Santos went on to win, 46.63 to 46.70.

Karsten Warholm is a fine athlete, Olympic champion, and world record holder.

Alison Dos Santos is a world champion and tough competitor.

The race in Paris, with Karsten Warholm, Alison Dos Santos, and Rai Benjamin, will be one of the highlights of Paris 2024.
