Olympic 400m hurdles bronze medallist Alison Dos Santos ran the third fastest time in the world this year at the Oslo Diamond League held on Thursday (16) at the Bislett Stadium in Oslo, Norway.
The 22 year old ran away with his third consecutive Diamond League title this season missing his own world-leading time with 47.26.
I ran a good time, but I expected more. I am in shape to run a 46 time. Every race we run is unique. If Warholm was here, it would be better. We are so proud of all the performances and our preparation this year. I have to finish the preparation to run very fast,” said Dos Santos.
