Marcell Jacobs back at the Italian Championships


Marcell Jacobs has decided to speed up his return to competition and to participate this weekend in the Italian Championships in Rieti. Absent from the tracks since mid-May due to a strained thigh, the Olympic 100m champion in Tokyo initially planned to resume on June 30 at the Stockholm meeting.

Since his surprise victory in Japan, the Italian sprinter, who is preparing for the Eugene Worlds (July 15-24) has only run two 100m at the modest Savona meeting on May 18. Without panicking the lap times: 9 »99 in series (with too favorable a wind at +2.3 m/s) and 10 »04 in the final.
