Langer ut: – Bad guy

EUGENE (Daily newspaper): – Do something about your form, you look like a train wreck.

– Your body looks underdeveloped.

– Great effort, but can someone feed him?

These are the words of British long-distance runner Eilish McColgan who had to hang on to social media for years. Recently, she has been dealing with body pressure and harassment on social media, writes Security.

– Nothing irritates me more than when people say I’m too thin. I am naturally thin and always have been. Some are just skinny… I doubt that someone a little bigger than usual would receive the same comments, he said.

He then posted a post on Instagram asking people to shut up:

– Bad

Norwegian athlete Karoline Bjerkeli Grøvdal is the same age as the British athlete, and has been notified of her completion.

Grøvdal, who also gave a clear message when the Alberto Salazar case was announced a few years ago, is proud of what the Englishman has done.

– People can be very cruel, especially on social media, he told Dagbladet.

The details are shocking: - Abused

Gravdal continued:

– It’s hard for him to fight them. So I think it’s special that people are so ugly on social media. It is important to remember that everyone has a different body in this game. We’re skinny long-distance runners, but that doesn’t mean we’re unhealthy. One has to be very careful about commenting on other people’s bodies.

The 32-year-old said that luckily she didn’t experience anything similar in her career, but was hurt by a British competitor:

– I know that he finds it hard to get a lot of crap. But it’s really cool that he’s brave enough to go out with her and hang out with them a bit. Hopefully people can stop commenting on bodies.

Chasing the final

Grøvdal, who is scheduled to run the WC in Eugene and EC in mid-August, has been in great form this season.

He “finally” had the Norwegian record for 5,000 meters with him to the US. During the Bislett Games in June, she improved 36-year-old Ingrid Kristiansen’s record by six seconds. The new record now is 14.31.11.

– Norway’s record hangs high, and I’ve been thinking about it for years. It was a relief to take it. I’ve been hunting for it a bit. It was delicious. And now I’m kind of done with it.

At the same time, it gives great confidence to go into two championships this year. Both Doha in 2019 and the Olympics in Tokyo ended in serious setbacks, but he has bounced back and has shown record form.

He looks forward to the competition:

– It’s great that it worked. I have been training well and remain injury free. It gives me peace of mind that I have a good charge. “I don’t have any concrete results, but I hope to perform as well as I did in Bislett,” he explained.

The women ran a 5,000-meter heat test on Thursday night. The final is on Sunday night.
