KILIAN JORNET RETIRED DUE TO A BEE´S STING: PERSONAL DECLARATIONS. 

 

Kilian Jornet’s statement after retiring from the UTMB after he suffered an allergic reaction and stomach pains caused by a bee sting a few hours hours before the start.

“Well, this UTMB didn’t finish as I expected. I was feeling very good, I was in good shape but some hours before the start a bee stung me and I am allergic to bee stings so I suffered an allergic reaction. We worked with my physiotherapist and with a doctor so that I’d be able to run. It seemed that it was working kind of OK, I just had some troubles in my stomach because of the medication. But after Courmayeur I had a big allergic reaction and I thought that It was not safe to continue and I decided to stop. Anyway that’s what’s great in racing, until race day nothing is written”.
