News : Ingebrigtsen vs. Jornet, 10k duel en route in Norway
Obviously this title is not going to be linked to really fighting in the top positions for the victory. At least it’s not what we expect, but with Kilian we are already so cured of fear that nothing would surprise us. What has happened is that Jakob Ingebrigtsen, the younger brother of this famous saga in world athletics, has confirmed his presence in the 10k Hytteplanmila.
Road debut for Jornet
Will be the first road race in Jornet’s race, until now always focused on mountain trials and challenges, where he has become the best in history and has achieved unimaginable milestones. Will be the two biggest media claims of a mythical career, Norway’s fastest test and in which the youngest of the Ingebrigtsen achieved the National Distance Record last year (27:54).
An amazing summer for Jakob
Has lived a fantastic summer Jakob, one of the great protagonists of these post-confinement months and in which the competition has undergone a series of changes and has had to adapt to the new times. Best European Brand ever in 2,000, personal best in 1,500 in a spectacular duel with Cheruiyot and now looking to reissue his national record in the 10 kilometers, demonstrating once again how versatile he is.
For his part, Jornet has been in recent months leaving us brushstrokes of his training on the track to prepare his debut on the road. It is difficult to know if it is to go down 29 ′ or not, but in any case it will make us enjoy a lot for sure.
Schedule and streaming
