“I have it all under control”. Why Johannes Boe refused to train with the Norwegian national team

Date: March 4, 2024 Time: 04:51:58

2023 is proving to be a great year for Norwegian biathlon team leader Johannes Boe. He won the World Cup and five gold medals at the Oberhof World Championships, and now he is also looking forward to replenishment in the family. Very soon Johannes and his wife Hedda will be parents for the second time. And for this reason, the best biathlete in the world will spend the whole summer with his family separated from the team.

Will he still be the best, allowing himself such liberties?

Johannes’ amazing results in the 2022/2023 season:

“I will never do something like that again.” Norwegian Johannes Boe had an incredible season

“I’m going to reset and turn on the gas!”

The addition to the family is expected in the coming weeks. Johannes decided all this time and until the end of September to be with his wife, his eldest son and their newborn baby, while his teammates had already completed a training camp in Spain. However, the biathlete has already sacrificed biathlon for the sake of his family. When the couple had their first child in the middle of the 2019/2020 season, Johannes missed the January stages of the World Cup and then came back and won the Great Crystal Globe.

“In a way, this is news to me when your wife is late in pregnancy and at the same time a three-year-old is running. Because of this, you have to spend more time at home. You always get excited when something new happens. But at the same time I have experience, and I see that I can do it quite well at home and have everything under control. I believe and hope that everything will work out, ”Johannes shared his feelings.

Happy family life of Johannes Boe:

You already have your summer planned. It takes into account both family rest and preparation for the new season. Johannes will spend most of his training at his home in Kongsvinger, where he, of course, provided a gym during construction. In July he will take a short summer vacation to spend as much time as possible with his family. And already in August, the biathlete will resume training, increasing the load in order to return to the team in September.

“I’ll resume in August and then turn on the gas!” Bo promised.

He also noted that his decision in the team was accepted with understanding.

“I have time to train, relax and be with my family. This is the best solution for me, but it also means that I am responsible for my own preparation and therefore for the result. This is a responsibility I take seriously and I want to show everyone that I can prepare for winter on my own,” said Boe Jr.

“He is the one who trains the least, but the best”

Eight-time Olympic champion Ole Einar Bjoerndalen believes that Johannes is the right athlete who can train effectively even at home.

“Every year, many are surprised and criticized for being behind. If I were any other athlete, I would say myself that it will be difficult for him to arrive in good shape at the start of the season. But Johannes can train effectively at home,” says Bjoerndalen.

Johannes’ closest pursuer, Norwegian Sturla Holm Legrade, wants to do everything possible to defeat Boe in the new season.

“I have to take this step, but there is a gap between Johannes and the rest of the world. He is a talent of extreme caliber. Between us, he trains the least, but he probably does the best. He has figured out what works best for him, and now he uses it very effectively. I’m not sure if this would work for others. Each one must find what suits them”, said the vice-leader of the World Cup last season.

“We love working with Johannes. Getting the chance to be with him during hard training and seeing the effectiveness of him is incredibly valuable,” Legrade admitted.

Johannes Boe’s secrets to success. Why is he so cool?

But it seems that the rivals’ desire to get ahead of him in the new season only spurs Johannes on.

“I know that next season everyone is going to want to beat me and that motivates me every day. I understand how hard the rivals are working for this victory, so I have to give everything at least the same.

His coach Egil Christiansen previously highlighted the special quality of his pupil, namely the moral balance he acquired last season:

“I think the main reason for his success is that he calmed down. He finished building the house, moved to Kongsvinger, it’s quiet there. When he is at home, he can concentrate on training and resting, being with Gustav and the family, without thinking about many other things. He helps a lot.”

If this quality really helps Johannes win, after such a summer preparation for the season, he will simply be unstoppable. So, we are waiting for the continuation of the permanent leadership of the great Norwegian.
