Event group protest
German event team protests after cross-country ride at the Olympics in Tokyo. A spokesman for the German Equestrian Association confirmed this on Sunday. The reason was that Michael Jung from Harp triggered a safety system while riding with Chipmunk. Jung “touched the barrier normally” national coach Hans Melcher said. Triggering the defensive system was penalized with eleven penalty points. As a result, Jung returned from first to tenth place in the individual before the final on Monday (10am). The German team slipped from second to sixth.
+++ Gold for Kong +++
German shot put champion Sarah Kampetta sold her best at her first Olympic final and finished eighth in her personal best. Chinese world champion Kong Lijiao is 20.53m ahead of American Raven Sanders (19.79) and New Zealand’s Valerie Adams (19.62).
+++ Germany Fence +++ has no medal
Germany’s Fencers finish second in a row without a medal. The men, who lost 36-45 in the final against the American-Americans in the final, lost their quarterfinals. Like the summer games in Rio de Janeiro five years ago, the German Fencing Association got nothing. Peter Joppich, Benjamin Kleepring and Andre Sanita put on a brave performance after the singles, with none of the Germans advancing to the 16th round. After a sovereign 45:31 in the 16th round against Canada, the German trio started the battle against world number one with great confidence. Initially a tough fighting game was developed with several leadership changes. Only in the final stage did the Americans get away with their star fences, Xerx Meinhardt and Alexander Masialos, and, as expected, win.
+++ Krozewski is fine +++
The German event team was significantly behind in the fight for medals at the Olympics in Tokyo. The trio moved from second to sixth on Sunday, following the mistakes of Michael Jung Chipmunk with Sandra Offert, Wymond and Harp of Contrace. In individual, Jung dropped to tenth place before the final on Monday (10am). Second was Julia Krozewski of Warrantorf with Amanda, a British Oliver Downton Ballakmore classmate.
Lesman finished sixth in the Olympic Premier +++
Laura Lesman finished sixth in the Olympic premiere in the BMX freestyle. The Berliner scored 79.60 points on Sunday at Tokyo’s Ariak Urban Sports Park. The first Olympic champion was Charlotte Worthington of the United Kingdom with a staggering 97.50 points, while Hannah Roberts of the United States won silver with 96.10 points. The bronze went to Nikita Tuckeros from Switzerland (89.20).
+++ Wellbrook won bronze +++
Dual world champion Florian Welbrook won the first men’s medal for a German pool swimmer at the Olympics in more than two decades. The 23-year-old won third place in the 1500m freestyle 800m Olympic champion Robert Finke of the United States in Tokyo on Sunday.
+++ Mihambo in excellent form at the right time +++
Germany’s gold hope Malaika Mihambo advanced to the Olympic final by crossing the seven-meter mark in Tokyo. The 2019 World Champion Emperor qualified for the medal fights at the Olympiastadion, finishing the season with a 6.98m on the third attempt. Only Serbian Ivana Spanovic (7.00) was better on Sunday. Maris Luzolo from LV Königstein (6.54) said it was not enough for the final on Tuesday (03.50 am / CEST).
+++ McKeon traces it after +++
What Kylape Dresl is for men, Emma McCain is for women. Australia confidently defeated Sarah Shastrom (Sweden) and Bernie Bloom (Denmark) in the 50m freestyle, thus winning her third gold medal in the Games. But that’s not all, because shortly after, along with Kaylee McCaw, Chelsea Hodges and Kate Campbell, they won their fourth gold by individual layer relay.
+++ Drussal Swimming King +++
Exceptional swimmer Caleb Dressel has won his fourth gold medal. The 24-year-old set the Olympic record after 21.07 seconds in the 50-meter freestyle final. Second was Frenchman Florent Manadov, who won bronze for Brazilian Bruno Fratas. Dressel had previously won gold in the double distance and 100m butterfly. In the butterfly race, he set a world record in 49.45 seconds. He also won the US 4 x 100m freestyle relay. He has now won a total of six Olympic gold medals. At the end of the pool, the 24-year-old American medley relay from Florida helped set the world record for gold in 3: 26.78 minutes. Five years ago in Rio de Janeiro, record Olympic champion Michael Phelps won all five gold medals when he left.
Easy to cross +++ at the end +++ of the barrier
Obstacle runner Kesha Cross confidently reached the Olympic final over 3000 meters. The two-time World Cup third and European champion qualified second in his opening race in 9: 19.62 minutes. “I don’t really want to shudder. The good thing is, I already have vibrating qualities and was able to solve it in the back,” said the 28-year-old from the New Year’s Eve Trier Club. Heels has been living in Switzerland since yesterday and in the Olympic Village since yesterday. “The project worked.” The other two German openers, Elena Burkert (Tornstetten) and Lee Meyer (Loningen), did not make the final.
