Thomas Barr finished third in a star-studded 400m hurdles field at the Diamond League meeting in Oslo on Thursday night. "I ran my season's best (time)", De Grasse said.

The home crowd were treated to a quite astonishing victory by 21-year-old Karsten Warholm, who set a Norwegian record of 48.25 seconds when taking the win.

His time in Thursday's Diamond League race did not match that Irish national record from Rio of 47.97 but was 0.44 faster than his season's best time. "Such races happen sometimes so I must accept it".

Wightman beat Kenya's Elijah Manangoi into second place, finishing in a time of 3:34.17 to smash his previous Personal Best by over a second.

In the men's 100m, Canadian Olympic bronze medallist Andre de Grasse took the honours in 10.01, just edging out Chijindu Ujah (UK, 10.02) and Ivory Coast's Ben Youssef Meite (10.03).

Still it was a highly satisfying run for the 24 year-old Barr, given he also took the scalp of the Olympic champion, Clermont, who hit a hurdle badly coming off the last bend, with 2014 European champion Kariem Hussein from Switzerland also well behind Barr in sixth.
