Double European Medalist Karoline Broke 31 Years Old Norwegian Record

On Saturday (17) at the Hytteplanmila Meet, a double European bronze medalist, Karoline Bjerkeli Grøvdal broke 31 years Ingrid Kristiansen’s Norwegian 10km road record with a stunning performance of 30 minutes and 32 seconds. Grøvdal’s winning time of 30:32 is actually the second-best time ever by a European woman in a 10km road race. Only British Paula Radcliffe has run faster, with 30.21 back in 2003.
