News : Kilian Jornet and Emilie Forsberg will be parents again
The best mountain runner in history, Kilian Jornet, will be a father for the second time with his partner, the also ‘trail runner’ Emilie Forsberg. They have announced it on Thursday afternoon on their social networks. The couple, settled in a beautiful house in the Norwegian fjords (he was born in the Catalan Pyrenees and she is Swedish), already have a daughter, Maj, and are now on the way to forming a large family of four (if we talk about human beings because they also have sheep and a dog). In the message they have published a photo of the whole family along with the ultrasound that shows Emilie’s pregnancy.
Debut in a road test
Great news for a Jornet who is experiencing a period of changes and new adventures. A couple of days ago, the world champion in sky running and ‘record holder’ of most major events worldwide competed for the first time in a road race. It was in the 10k Hytteplanmila, the fastest race in the Nordic country and among the participants were Filip and Jakob Ingebrigtsen, two of the three brothers of this saga so famous in the world of athletics.
Kilian did a record of 29:59, spectacular considering the type of training he has done throughout his life. Jornet nailed a pace of 3: 00 / km, somewhat worse than he had in mind, and he stayed 1’40 ”behind the winner of the event, the Norwegian Zerei Kbrom Mezngi (28:20). He finished 18th out of a total of 63 participants.
“Woooohooo we are waiting for another little one! ❤️ ❤️❤️ OMG I’ve been tired but what fun they will have on all of our mountain adventures! Soon halfway there and I start to feel better, ”commented Forsberg. Congratulations couple!
