OSLO, Norway- Virgin Islands athlete and Diamond League champion Kyron A. McMaster had to surrender victory to home favourite and World Champion Karston Warholm in their Diamond League meet in Oslo, Norway on June 13, 2019.

McMaster matched a fast starting Warholm for the first six hurdles but began to fade badly from the final bend while Warholm, electrified by the sold-out crowd at Bislett Stadium, powered on to victory with a European record in the 400m hurdles with a sensational 47.33 performance.

A badly tightening McMaster finished in 49.12 but was pipped on the line by Ireland’s Thomas Barr by 0.01 of a second.

"It's crazy to run a European record and it's amazing to do it here at Bislett,” said Warholm, who opened his season with a 47.85 win in Stockholm. “My coach thought I would run 47.30 so he was nearly right. I've worked so hard during the winter with the pressure coming at me, so this is a very special feeling, it's the best in the world."

The Gold Coast Commonwealth Champion, McMaster, had entered the race with a Season’s Best 49.37 recorded in Guadeloupe in May 18, 2019.
