Ernest A.  LERSWEN – A clear message about Gert Ingebrigtsen

On Wednesday night, the stage was set for the men’s 1,500m race at the Budapest WC.

Jakob Ingebrigtsen (22) and Narve Gilje Nordås (24) will start from there. The former is a big favourite.

Before the tournament, where Dagbladet is based, there was some drama between the two Norwegian runners.

Shock to NRK file


Because after Jakob Ingebrigtsen and his brothers parted ways with Gert Ingebrigtsen’s father as coach, the latter was given the role of coach of Gili Nordas.

Subsequently, the latter stated that he would no longer speak to Jakob Ingebrigtsen, at the same time that Gjert Ingebrigtsen was not accredited for the World Cup in Budapest, despite the fact that he is the coach of the Gilje Nordås team.

– strange

Long-running TV 2 sports profiler Ernst A. Lersveen reacts to the chaos that has arisen.

– To strangers, it must seem rather strange. Nobody knows much. There is no relationship between father and son, as we perceive it from the outside. The contestants do not speak to each other, according to Gilgi. Then it becomes a rather strange thing, seen from the outside. It’s quite unusual, Lersven tells Dagbladet.

To what extent do you think this affects athletes?

– It didn’t seem to affect it at all. They run like hell. I’m so impressed. In terms of sports, Jacob is one of the greatest I’ve seen. And Narvi is not far from it either. We are witnessing some of the greatest sports a Norwegian has ever played. never. There is no doubt about that, says the now-retired Lersvin.

Gert will keep

Lersveen wonders what the champions themselves think of the situation, not least what would happen if Gilje Nordas beat Jakob Ingebrigtsen in Wednesday’s World Cup final in the 1,500m.

– says Lersvin: – It would have been very special.

He has a clear message about Gert Ingebrigtsen: let him continue as coach!

– It must sound rather strange for Gert’s father as a coach. that he must flog a runner for hitting his son. You can get schizophrenia from less. The hope is that they can sort this out as a family, and that we can keep Geert in Norwegian sport, says the 70-year-old.

continued:

– I think the Athletics Federation has a responsibility there. Without us knowing what happened, he clearly had reason to worry. We’ve seen it with his three children, and now Narvi.

– But I repeat: for strangers, the situation we now live in must be quite strange. It’s sad for the family, and certainly not easy for those around the boys either. It becomes something you don’t talk about. It is a very unusual situation.

Never experienced anything like it

Lersvin admits that resolving this entanglement is certainly not easy, and believes the situation is very profound, and compares it to the cross-country skiing environment, which he himself has been following closely for several years.

– It’s not that all athletes are best friends, and that’s not why they get together, but they tend to be together and deal with it. This applies to all sports. It’s not like Peter Northug and Martin Johnsrud Sundby met every Friday, but they did compete together in the national team. They managed to exchange a few words.

– I’ve been involved in a lot of sports, but nothing like this. That it was so tense for the open stage is very special.

Lersven points his finger at the Swedish Athletics Federation.

– I think the biggest nugget (Jakob Ingebrigtsen) in Norwegian sport very possibly indicated that he didn’t want to see my dad every day. But I think they could have said something other than “comprehensive evaluation” and “comprehensive evaluation”. They can tell it like it is, the three boys, Ingebrigtsen and Abi, have separate teams when it comes to sports, so it’s sportingly better off for Gert, says Laersven.

It is possible that he thinks that the guild, Gert, men and Narvi can come together and not give up so that they can disagree so much about a lot, but still come to some agreement and reconciliation.

“Sprinters impress me more than the Union,” Lersvin said plainly.

In conclusion, he praises Jakob Ingebrigtsen as a formidable athlete, who Lersven believes is the greatest in Norwegian sport ever.

– It’s easy for me, standing in the snow, to say that cross-country skiers are exceptional athletes, which they are, but it’s totally wild. “So I wouldn’t be surprised if he hits the world record at some point,” says Lersvin.

It is reported that the Norwegian is the one who competes in the 1,500-meter race, as do quite a few others in the world.

– For me, Vibjorn Rodal’s gold was the biggest, but unfortunately Rodal had to go down. Lersvin concludes that he has been demoted by Jacob.
