2021 Bislett Diamond League Preview

And although the 25-year-old Norwegian, gold medallist at the 2019 World Championships, is relishing the pressure to perform to such lofty heights, he says his eyes are firmly set on Olympic gold in Tokyo ahead of records.

And the reason behind his sense of calm? His love of Lego and his classic car, a retro Beetle.

“With a lot of spare time during the Covid-19 pandemic, I got into building Lego which was a nice way to recharge and focus on something else that I enjoy,” says the 2019 and 2017 world champion, who has created a list of elaborate creations including Tower Bridge, Old Trafford, a Porsche and a Disney Castle.

uided by 65-year-old Leif Olav Alnes, the duo have a wonderfully wacky relationship as best friends immersed in a life of humour and practical jokes, combined with intense training.

“It’s a match made in heaven,” Warholm says. “He’s the old man but he keeps young in his mind and is full of experience and knowledge, and a great friend too who has given me the ability to perform at the best level.

“I wouldn’t do this journey on my own – it’s good to have the best coach in the world on it with me.”

With a passion for sharp suits, Warholm is well-known for having a personality as bright and extravagant as the dapper outfits he likes to showcase off the track.

“Humour and having fun takes away some of the seriousness of having to perform,” he says. “I want to of course race well but I also want to enjoy it – I like to show who I really am and do it in a real way.”

The world record motivation

On the the inevitable world record hopes on his shoulders, the European indoor 400m record holder, who failed to progress beyond the semi-final stage at the 2016 Games in Rio, says: “I feel better prepared than ever.

“I’ve been focusing more on high quality training and a few adjustments to make some developments, but we mostly stick to the formula we know works.

“It is not a given that I will break the world record first and it’s hard to tell when it will happen. I’m very happy I’m able to talk about it as a scenario that can happen, though.”

Indeed, Rai Benjamin, the American world silver medallist, recorded a surprise 46.83 at the US Olympic trials in Oregon last weekend to pass Warholm on the all-time standings.

Warholm says he embraces the pressure from Norway as one of only two Olympic medal hopes for the Scandinavian nation, along with Jakob Ingebrigtsen, the 20-year-old European 1500m and 5,000m champion.
