Karsten Warholm broke his own Norwegian record by 0.03 seconds and set a new World lead with 45.56-second performance in the 400m at the inaugural KW International indoor meet on Friday (25).

In the process, the-22-year-old World and European Champion over 400m hurdles, Warholm, defeated 3-time World Indoor Champion Pavel Maslak of the Czech Republic, who finished in a distant second place in 47.10 seconds.

"Fantastic to record both records. That means I'm in good shape. It's extraordinary to win at home," Warholm said after the race against NRK.
