As we thought a couple of weeks ago, based on the pictures and information we saw and investigated at the Tjörnarparen – Trail Ultra and we told you in this article many clues brough us to the conclusion that both athletes might sign a partnertship during this 2022 with COROS, and today at 17.00 CET hours been officially announced by COROS.
KILIAN JORNET & EMILIE FORSBERG NEW COROS AMBASSADORS
Kilian and Emilie have announced in the last 2 days their official “good bye” to Suunto in their instagrams accounts. Moreover, on 30NOV 2021 it was announced that their relationships with Salomon was to end too. In addition, Suunto is in the process of being sold from Amersports, Salomon’s mother house, to China’s Lisheng. Thus, the photos of the recently contested Swedish 100 miles and other indications made us believe that the announcement of today was about to happen.
This partnership is one more sign of COROS’s commitment to the training of performance at the highest level. To forge the relationship and be able to experience the product in a high-performance environment, COROS co-founder Lewis Wu traveled to Norway to meet with both and accompany Kilian on a few laps of his circuit mountain ski training facility.
Both Kilian and Emelie have set themselves important competitive targets for 2022. Kilian’s recently announced schedule includes his return to the UTMB, where the former Chamonix area resident is a three-time champion, The Hardrock Hundred, where he is a four-time champion, Zegama with 9 wins in 10 appearances and Sierra-Zinal, where Kilian has won 9 times including the last 5 editions.

He added: “We don’t want COROS to be a sponsor. purely commercial, but we strive for the brand to really contribute value to the training of athletes.
