So far, Therese Johaug has participated in two Winter Olympics.She started racing in Vancouver in 2010, where she won the gold medal in the 4x5km relay and brought the championship in Sochi in 2014 silver Justyna Kowalczyk won the 30km freestyle race and won the bronze medal in the 10km classic style race.
However, she started with a skier. Now, she can appear at the most important party of four years, but in the summer as an athlete. As early as 2020, the Norwegian woman said that she may hope to obtain the minimum requirements for the Tokyo Olympics in a 10,000-meter running race. It participated in the Impossible Games event held in Oslo, which was a combination of separate competitions from many competitors from different places. Then everyone praised her for setting a life record-31:40,67.
Now, Johaug has confirmed that she will participate in the competition at the Bislett Stadium in the Norwegian capital on Saturday. Although she still does not know if she will go to Japan to compete, she still wants to qualify for the Olympics there. Before that, she needed 31 minutes and 25 seconds, which is 15 seconds better than completing the “Impossible Game” competition a year ago. Media and track and field experts, especially the Swedes, expressed doubts about Norwegian for the first time.
In addition to “Impossible Game”, Johaug was also very happy when he became the champion the previous year Norway Karoline Bjerkeli Groevdal was the best long distance race in Scandinavia at 10,000 meters. She didn’t participate in the race at the time and she was in good physical condition-she recently surpassed the world record in the 5000 meters street race. Saturday’s match in Oslo will be their first track and field competition, and the Norwegian media are very interested in their competition.
Swedish track and field expert A. Lennart Juhlin expressed doubts about its form. -She may succeed and achieve success, but I doubt whether she can participate in the Olympics. Last year it attracted people’s attention because it was Johaug. It performed well, but it was still 1.5 minutes slower than the Norwegian record-he pointed out “Aftonbladet”.
Other Swedish experts pay more attention to other aspects of the Johaug game, rather than the sports aspect of the Johaug game. This is a controversial technology that the Norwegian will use on Saturday, and it has been in operation before. This is a “lyshare system”, a device placed on a treadmill and properly programmed to show athletes how to run with small lights to reach a specific time.
Johaug has used them, for example in the Impossible Games mentioned above. At the time, some people thought this was an unusual solution for the man who tried to create Johaug as a competitor, because the Norwegian woman campaigned alone. -This is an unauthorized tool, and it brings many benefits to the people who use it. According to Juhlin, this is a non-sports power steering.
This result allows Johaug to start the race in Tokyo, and she will be ranked 11th in the 10,000m race at the 2016 Rio Olympics. Karoline Bjerkeli Groevdal ranked ninth, and Ethiopian Almaz Ayana won with a time of 29:17.45-the world record at the time. The 10,000-meter run for the Tokyo Olympics is scheduled for August 7, which is the penultimate day of the Japanese competition. The minimal Olympic Games as part of Vaerens Vakreste Stafett will start at 1:00 pm on Saturday.
