Karsten Warholm, the Norwegian sprinter, broke his record and that of the Olympics, overcoming all hurdles and hitting the final 400 metres well ahead of others finishing it 46 seconds flat, setting a world record for himself and the Olympics Tokyo, keeping his rhythm and pace.

Indulging in a few histrionics, Warholm, with his eyes bulging, roared instinctively and ripped open his shirt amid gasps from the fellow athletes and team officials at the Olympic Stadium as the world record flashed up on the big screen.

Warholm broke his previous world record of 46.70 seconds, whereas Americas Rai Benjamin took silver 46.17 seconds. At the same time, Alison dos Santos of Brazil won bronze in 46.72 seconds.

The new record, however, probably didn't go down well with everyone. People called Warholm a fantastic athlete but attributed his wind like a victory to his technology shoes developed by carbon technique with assistance from the Mercedes F1 team.

Warholm, at Tokyo, reset a world record which only four runners in history have run in under 47 seconds, allowing him to be one of the greatest sprinters the sport has ever seen.
