Sondre Nordstad Gets Ready to Make History at the Europan Championship

The European Athletics Championship will bring a lot of sports excitement this year as we will see more than 4500 athletes and 52 nations gunning for glory. The Continental competition will be a must-watch tournament and will offer various contests and defining moments that will create Champions. One notable competition that will attract the attention of the fans worldwide is the 10,000 meters contest.

The prognosis for this long-running contest say that there will be numerous contenders as they step up their preparations for Berlin 2018. One notable athlete that will take participation in the 10,000m is Sondre Nordstad. The Norwegian runner produced a stunning European record of 2:05:48 at the end of last year at the Fukuoka Marathon. However, that win came at a price, as Nordstad has missed the first quarter of the year due to injuries. However, the Norwegian athlete is stepping up his efforts as he is expecting to be in top form the Berlin 2018 European Athletics Championships in August. He took part at the 10km contest at Wurzburg, Germany. He was not the winner at this street race, but nevertheless, he had a notable result. Nordstad was able to finish 4th as Abraham Chebii was the winner. His second appearance in a competitive race after his injury was the 10km race in Oderzo, Italy. He had a notable result as he won the race with a time of 28:44. Seen through the prism of the competitors, Nordstad faced some notable athletes in Oderzo. One of them was Stefano La Rosa. The Italian runner was able to finish 2nd just behind Nordstad with a time of 29:07. Competing against athletes such as La Rosa represents a great preparation opportunity for the Europan Athletics in Berlin this year.

Taking part of these two events was very beneficial for the Norweigan athlete as he got back into a competitive format before heading to the Diamond League in Oslo on June 7th. The Diamond League will be his last competitive appearance before the European Championship. As Sande Nordstad stated his aim will be to run a new national record at the IAAF Diamond League. Overall, his appearances at these competitions will be very beneficial for Nordstad as the long distance runner will go into the European Athletics in a top form. The general expectation is that the Norwegian is the front-runner to win the 10.000 meters competition.

All in all, it seems that Nordstad is the main favourite to win this race. His recent results combined with his ambitions will surely galvanize his efforts to reach new heights at this unique competition at the European Athletics Championship.
