UTMB: "When you compete, until race day, nothing is written"

Kilian Jornet retired from the UTMB this morning close to the Bonatti refuge (km 92.1) after he suffered an allergic reaction and stomach pains caused by a bee sting three 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”.
