One of Norway's biggest gold jumpers in the World Athletics Championships in Eugene was Jakob Ingebrigtsen. The 21-year-old won the 1500-meter gold in the Olympics, and on Monday night, he quickly proceeded to the World Cup final over the same distance.

He broke both the Olympic and European records when winning the gold medal in the 1500-meter event at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

At the 2018 European Championships, Ingebrigtsen also took home two gold medals in the 1500- and 5000-meter races. He currently holds the indoor 1500m world record.

Ingebrigtsen was the youngest pacemaker for Eliud Kipchoge's successful attempt at a sub-two-hour marathon in October 2019. Let's explore his personal life, including his long-term girlfriend. 

Who is Jakob Ingebrigtsen Girlfriend? He Paid Tribute To Her In The World Athletics Championship

No member of the Norwegian national team is permitted to have intimate contact with any outsider during the World Cup. When Jakob Ingebrigtsen ran into his girlfriend Elisabeth Asserson in the spectators after his first race, he took it extremely seriously.

Pictures demonstrate how Ingebrigtsen chose to give his fiancée a "fist bump" rather than a hug or kiss. Ove Talsnes, the physician for the national squad, is happy.

Talsnes tells NRK that this proves the man is a sincere practitioner who abides by our rules.

He emphasizes that while kissing is not prohibited during the competition, it is crucial to maintain the Norwegian bubble.

"Elisabeth is a responsible person, therefore, it doesn't surprise me that even when she was sick, she got in touch with Jakob. The most certain thing is that we avoid interacting with anyone outside the bubble, including husbands and girlfriends."

The night before Wednesday, Swedish time, Jakob Ingebrigtsen competes in the 1500-meter final.

Is Jakob Ingebrigsten Getting Married Soon? 

Jakob Ingebrigtsen, a Norwegian and European record holder, and his long-term partner Elisabeth Asserson are getting married. The couple has been together for more than five years.

After dating for more than five years, Asserson has witnessed all of Ingebrigtsen's most significant sporting triumphs. She has watched in awe as he transitioned from a young athlete with tremendous potential to an undisputedly rising star on the track.

Ingebrigtsen has been on the running community's radar for a while, but during the last few years, he has steadily increased his level of success. He won the indoor 3,000-meter European title in 2019 before competing for Norway in the world championships in Doha, Qatar.

He ran two nearly-podium performances there, placing fourth in the 1,500-meter race and fifth in the 5,000-meter race. He finished the year by setting a new Norwegian record for the 10K in 27:54 and taking first place in the U20 European cross-country competition.

Even though COVID-19 made 2020 a new year, he was nonetheless successful on the track, achieving European records in the 1,500m (3.28.68) and 2,000m (4:50.01), as well as an unofficial Norwegian 5K road mark (he ran his 13:28 PB on an uncertified course).

Meet Jakob Ingebrigsten Paretns 

Jakob Ingebrigtsen was born to a Norwegian family of athletes, including father Gjert, brothers Henrik and Filip, and Kristoffer, Martin, Ingrid, and William. Team Ingebrigtsen, a TV show, is about the family.

Gjert Ingebrigtsen, the father of the three brothers, coaches them. Ingebrigtsen Sr. owes their success to his coaching methods.

There have been instances where a parent has coached their children and motivated them to excel. Still, this case is unique in that Ingebrigtsen Sr. had no prior coaching or playing expertise and worked as an accountant at his wife's hair salon in addition to working for a logistics company.

The three brothers hold all of the Norwegian middle distance records, and Jakob Ingebrigtsen won a medal in the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo. Success at the highest level of competition will not only boost Norway's standing in track events but also bring more incredible notoriety to the Ingebrigtsen family.

The youngest and brightest of the family is Jakob. Jakob outperformed his sibling, climbing to No. 2 worldwide for the 1500 m category in March 2020.
