Jacob Ingebrigtsen is the winner of the People's idrettspris: - Very fun that people have voted me up

now there were men lying (Dagbladet): - All the where were the nominees? Shit, ass!

the Reaction from Jacob Ingebrigtsen is genuine and spontaneous when we read up on the other nominees for the People's idrettspris 2018.

He got the most votes in competition with Magnus Carlsen, Marit Bjørgen, Maren Lundby, John Høsflot Klæbo, Aksel Lund Image, Anders Mol and Christian Sørum, Ada Hegerberg, Håvard Lorentzen and Karsten Warholm.

Magnus Carlsen has well won this a few times before, has he not? I am inside a good company now. This is a cool price. It is really fun that the people have voted me up.

Just Carlsen was until last year the youngest winner of the award. Now, it is Spoken as the youngest.

It was the father and father Gjert, who told the son about the People's idrettspris. Gjert control most, both on and off the athletics track. On the championship and conferences is the "very few who have something they should have said about what we do. It is not something in particular with the input from outside", says Jacob.

Back to the People's idrettspris:

- Besides to be this year's performer or the best in everything one year, then the people their prices the ones I value most. To be liked by people is a special thing. I will not use the word sick, but I think this is a cool price to get.

We meet Jacob Ingebrigtsen in his apartment under his parents ' house at home in the now there were men lying, where he lives with his girlfriend Elizabeth Asserson. The interview had to be in the afternoon, when Jacob first had to be done at the school before he could meet with us.

back home from a long day at Sandnes upper secondary school, where Ingebrigtsen going in tredjeklasse, he studies the statuette, which indicates that he has won the People's idrettspris in the year. Among ten nominees, the people i.e. the forward 18-year-old as the winner of the award " has awarded each year since 1990.

the Statuette will fit on a small medaljebord where Ingebrigtsen has collected medals and other trophies he has won.

For he has achieved quite a lot on the athletics track to be 18 years of age. On the question of what have been the highlights he takes his first back 1500 m from Monaco, when he set a new european juniorrekord with time 3.31.18.

Then, the obvious: The two EM-gullene in Berlin in august. In addition, Ingebrigtsen european champion for junior in cross country. EM-gullene in Berlin came when he was 17 years old, which made him the youngest male european champion in athletics. Seierne came in the 1500 and 5000 metres.

In the final of the 1500 metres he won in front of the two brothers Henry and Philip.

the Days in Berlin were fierce in all possible ways. What I got in Berlin were not entirely realistic in advance, with an eye on the entrance my. It was completely over. I will probably remember the two gullene long.

- People judged us before

in The last years the Norwegian people become better acquainted with Jacob and the rest of the Ingebrigtsen family through the NRK tv-series "Team Ingebrigtsen". In the series we are close on the whole family, both on the athletics track and private.

Recently, it was confirmed that there will be a third season of the popular series.

to begin with, it was cool to look at. The first was the Henry family practitioner, while others hung a little behind. People judged us before, and it was probably a little bit of the impetus for creating the series.

How then?

- We should show what we stood for, and that we were more than just a bunch of cocky assholes from Sandnes which is not always made as all others said, but that was still pretty good. We wanted to show that there was more behind. It is not just to go out on the field to run, we do things other than it.

He adds:

Henry has a good faith belief itself. It must have, but then it quickly made that you get you a boy in the face the few times it did not go so well. In running you may have a lot of bad luck, and if you also go a bit high out in advance, there may be negative consequences. The whole family got a stamp on it. It has been fun to show that it is not like some think. We are also shown why we say that "we shall win tomorrow", even though we may not always manage it.

- How do you see yourself as a public person?

- You can look at it in many ways... I'm really not a very social person. It is difficult to be both social and toppidrettsutøver. One quickly becomes flaky and think it is okay to sit alone while you relax. I have never wanted to be a person who people come to. But when one does well in sports so it follows the only attention. It must only find themselves in, " he says, and does not hide that it is fun with the many Instagram followers (he has 142 000).

Will win the world cup

In 2019 await new challenges for 18 year-old Jacob. The world cup will be held in Doha, and where we can once again get three norwegians together when it should løpes 1500 metres.

On questions about what to to the for that he gets a perfect 2019, he replies the following:

- For it to be a perfect year, so may the best happen. I can get a personal best and do well in the world cup, but it is not certain that it is perfect. For it to be that I must set the world record and win the world cup, Diamond League and it can be won. Few manage to get to something perfect. You have Usain Bolt and the greatest, but if I get asked I am when I'm happy, so I will not be satisfied until I have taken a gold medal in the OLYMPIC games, world CHAMPIONSHIPS and set the world record. Even if it is unrealistic. It is not possible before you manage to do it. I can't be 100 percent satisfied if I do not manage it. It is our way of thinking. Much is surreal and will most likely not to happen, but it's how we do it.

- What motivates you when you have won so much at a young age?

I look at EM as a step towards the goal I put me from the start. It is to be the world's best runner in the 1500 metres. To win the european cup is a pretty big step, but only a step in the right direction. I want to do well in the world cup next year, but also know that it comes lots of important afterwards.

He points out that he is fortunate that brother Henry and father Gjert have made a sort of base for him through the years they held on before he started.

Jacob Ingebrigtsen can win three awards at the Idrettsgallaen

I don't really have as many weaknesses. I just have to be able to train very much, a very long time. It is said that you get out your full potential ten years after having trained twice a day every day. Time is perhaps a weakness. I may not have enough time behind me enough training.

Something he'd rather not have time for, is to have a so-called normally ungdomsliv. In the spring, he is the russ, without that it's going to be marked in any way.

- Some of the stuff where I have enough of an adult view on. I know not any loss after the russetid. But the social by being part of a kind of gang is something I can miss. I thought more of it when I was on the little sister Ingrid (12) his age. Now I have more focus on friidrettskarrieren.

Negative to the school

Spoken with goes minor at Sandnes upper secondary school , "ten minutes away, but I use five". There he experiences, there are major differences from the lives of his peers.

I live like an adult. I need to keep myself healthy and do the job to be good. It is enough distant for them. For my part, it is okay to have the school as a social arena, at the same time as I do elite sport.

- Have you thought about what you will do after high school?

- Yes, I have thought a lot about. It is completely blank! I can't wait until I can start betting on running. The school takes a lot of effort and time. I'll probably get me through.

Klæbo inspired by Jacob (17): - It is absolutely at to look at what he gets to,

Silence for a few seconds before Ingebrigtsen begins to talk further about the school.

I see myself as a very academic even if I don't manage to do anything near of what I think I'm good for. I'm fond of math. In addition, I am good in oral, in particular, to discuss and kverulere. I get good grades in school, but I could have done it better. Now I must sacrifice much to spend time on running and then I get used any time in school. Yet somehow I felt okay. Therefore, I feel that I could have done it better if I had spent a little more time on it. But it does not go with the day that I have been awarded the...

Spoken with tells us that it was a hot topic to drop out in the beginning of the tredjeklasse and that "I is very negative to school right now". Now is his only motivation to get a real diploma, just as storebrødrene.

They began to bet after that, but not as much as me. I have long been negative to the school and looked at it as an obstacle.

- What would you have done if you had not been running?

- Then I would certainly had a very much better grades. And then I had played football with the buddies my and lived a normal ungdomsliv.

- What would you asked yourself whether if you were a journalist?

- Why bother to drive with the running?

- And what do you answer it?

- don't Know!
