BERLIN (AP) - Norway's Jakob Ingebrigtsen had the joy of beating his older brother in a 1-2 finish in the men's 5,000 meters, and host nation Germany celebrated two more golds at the European Athletics Championships on Saturday.

The 17-year-old Ingebrigtsen, who became the youngest athlete to clinch a European track title when he won the 1,500 on Friday, finished in 13 minutes, 17.06 seconds for a European under-20 record.

"We started preparing for the 5K final as soon as we crossed the line on the 1,500 last night," Ingebrigtsen said.

His 27-year-old brother, Henrik Ingebrigtsen, was second, ahead of Morhad Amdouni of France.

"This could only feel better if our brother Filip was here to take the bronze medal. Unfortunately, he injured himself and couldn't take part in the final," Henrik Ingebrigtsen said of 25-year-old Filip Ingebrigtsen, who had raced as defending champion in the 1,500 the night before but finished 12th.

"We have another brother who is turning 5 years old, and soon can join the Ingebrigtsen team," Henrik Ingebrigtsen joked.

Another trio of brothers, including a pair of twins, helped Belgium to win gold in the men's 4x400 relay. Jonathan and Kevin Borlee, both 30, joined younger brother Dylan, and Jonathan Sacoor, for victory ahead of Britain and Spain.

Poland won gold in the women's 4x400 ahead of France and Britain.

Germany's Mateusz Przybylko delighted the home crowd, winning the men's high jump by clearing 2.35 meters to equal his personal best.

"I always want to jump higher - up to the sky," Przybylko said beforehand.

Celebrations continued in Berlin's Olympic Stadium when Malaika Mihambo won the women's long jump with 6.75.

"I made it difficult for myself," Mihambo said.

British sprinter Dina Asher-Smith, who won the 100 on Tuesday, successfully defended her 200 title ahead of Dutch sprinters Dafne Schippers and Jamile Samuel in a joint world-leading time of 21.89.

"I know this is not the Olympic Games or the world championships, but I'm still very proud of myself," said the 22-year-old Asher-Smith, who is targeting a treble in the 4x100 on Sunday.

World and Olympic discus champion Sandra Perkovic of Croatia defended her title with a throw of 67.62 to become the first to win five consecutive European titles.

Justyna Swiety-Ersetic, part of Poland's 4x400 winning team, finished strongly to win the women's 400 ahead of Greece's Maria Belibasaki, and Adam Kszczot of Poland defended his 800 title ahead of Sweden's Andreas Kramer and France's Pierre-Ambroise Bosse.

Earlier, Alvaro Martin and Maria Perez made it a Spanish double in the men and women's 20K walks.
