May 13, 2021

Marcell Jacobs (Fiamme Oro) in the legend of Italian athletics. The blue breaks the Italian record of 100 meters by signing the time of 9.95 in Savona, in battery, with +1.5 of wind in favor. The European indoor champion in the 60s is the second blue under the 10-second barrier after Filippo Tortu’s 9.99 in 2018. “I didn’t realize what happened, I’ll do it tonight, when I’m in bed and I already know I won’t fall asleep – it’s safe -. I wanted to run the final but as I warmed up I had a small cramp in my calf and I didn’t want to risk anything, as it is only the first race of the season. My goal was to go under ten seconds and I did it … now head to the next race, Saturday 22 in Rieti “said the blue who then gave up running the final won by the twenty-year-old Patta with 10.13.” I’m happy because in general I make a lot of comparisons with indoor: if I think that in the first indoor outing I ran 6.55 and then I improved race after race up to 6.47, I hope the same happens in the 100 meters “, continued Jacobs. “How did I work after the Torun triumph? We found the perfect balance, in whatever we do. We didn’t upset the jobs or do many different things, in the gym or on the track. We just stretched the meter because there were forty meters. more to cover. I have not yet had the opportunity to call my children and my partner but they were following me in front of the TV: yes, they will be proud of me “.
