Jakob Ingebrigtsen sees the Race of the Noses

Definitely committed to the end of the year, the Cursa dels Nassos (Barcelona's San Silvestre) aims to get people talking about it almost as much as we talk about the San Silvestre Vallecana (Madrid) or the San Silvestre in São Paulo, which is the most popular in the world.

Jakob Ingebrigtsen sees the Race of the Noses

Definitely committed to the end of the year, the Cursa dels Nassos (Barcelona's San Silvestre) aims to get people talking about it almost as much as we talk about the San Silvestre Vallecana (Madrid) or the San Silvestre in São Paulo, which is the most popular in the world.

So bet big.

And bet on insurance.

Or perhaps Jakob Ingebrigtsen is not a guarantee of quality?

Olympic champion of the 1,500, world champion of the 5,000, multiple European champion of both distances, the Norwegian talent (22) has confirmed his presence in the short distance of the Nassos, the 5K, a race that will be held at 7:00 p.m. on the 31st of December and in which we could witness a European record: Ingebrigtsen will look for the 13m14s of the Italian Yemane Crippa, an objective that is within his reach, since the Norwegian has come to sign 12m48s45 in the 5,000m, record of the track test.

The organizers assure that Jakob Ingebrigtsen will not run alone, but rather escorted by his older brothers, Henrik (31) and Filip (29), European champions of the 1,500 in 2012 and 2016, a magnificent display of Norwegian athletics that includes Karoline Grovdal (32), European cross country gold in the last two editions, including the most recent, just a week and a half ago, in Turin.

Grovdal will run in the same distance, the 5K, where the Ethiopian Ejegayehu Taye (22), world record holder (14m19s from last year right here, in Barcelona), and the sharp German Konstanze Klosterhalfen await her.

The 10K will have been held earlier, starting at 5:15 p.m.
