Henrik INGEBRIGTSEN - Norway - Third medal at 1500m in a European Championship

2012 champion Henrik Ingebrigtsen can not find a way past David Bustos and Richard Douma

as the runners race to the finish line of the men's 1,500 metres final in Amsterdam. He had to settle

for the bronze medal to add to the gold and silver (2014) he had already won in the event. He was

angry at the end of the race with the obstruction he encountered, but as the Norwegian record holder

(3.33.95) perhaps his tactics were at fault.
