Former alpine skier Jens Byggmark competing together with Jocke and Jonna Lundell in Prisoners at the Fort. When it’s time for a cell that requires good fitness, it’s Jens who gets to stand up – even though he warns that his fitness is no longer what it used to be.
“Mine has started to fall,” he says to his teammates.
“Wait, Gunde… Can we take a break?”
He has to fight hard in the cell, which looks like a cross between an obstacle course and a tumble dryer. And the cell really takes the must out of him.
“I ran out of steam,” he says right after he comes out. Wait Gunde, can we take a break? I can’t breathe…
Forced to the infirmary
Jens gets to take a break from competing and visit the infirmary at Fort Boyard.
— The air ran out. I have a little trouble breathing. I have had asthma all my life and it has gotten a little worse in recent years, he says.
