• Moen surpasses long-standing European one hour record in Kristiansand

August 11, 2020

Sondre Nordstad Moen might have lost his European marathon record in 2018 but the Norwegian set his second European record of the season on the track on home soil in Kristiansand on Friday (7) evening.

Just less than two months after breaking the long-standing European 25,000m record at the Impossible Games in Oslo, Moen surpassed Jos Hermens’ long-standing European one-hour record with 21,132 metres. Hermens' mark was set all the way back in 1976 and is the second longest-standing European senior record on the books.
