One of the most talented athletes of his generation, Jakub Ingebrigtsen is one of the next generation of European Athletes. Fearless, well trained, and determined, Filip will, someday soon, ascend to the top medal position on the global stages. I have spoken with his father (Dusseldorf WIT, 2019) and believe that the training focuses on callousing the brothers to world class shape and racing fitness. The level of confidence that this young man possesses is astounding, reminding me of the late American star, Steve Prefontaine.
SANDNES (NOR): Double European champion Jakob Ingebrigtsen has said he considers himself at a disadvantage to some of his rivals as he cannot even use an altitude tent let alone train at altitude at the moment, informs NRK. “We have no choice, right now we are not allowed to go to the altitude, nor are we allowed to use altitude tents as just about the only nation in the world,” he said. By contrast, Marcin Lewandowski is able to use an altitude tent and he has also said the high performance centre in Zakopane is due to re-open soon. Both Ingebrigtsen and Lewandowski hope there will be a late summer season including the European Championships in Paris.
