Italy again! After Lamont’s Marcel Jacobs victory in the 100-meter race, Italy also won the Olympic title in the 4 x 100-meter relay. In 37.50 seconds, Lorenzo Bata, Marcel Jacobs, Iusa Faustin DeSallo and Filippo Torto triumphed in a new national record on Friday afternoon in Germany. It was exciting to the end: only in the last few metres, the last sprinter Filippo Torto managed to overtake the British team, which won the silver medal by a hundredth.
Canada took the bronze in 37.70 seconds. China and Jamaica also remained below 38 seconds, confirming the high level of the relay race.
The DLV team is in sixth place
The German quartet could not interfere with the medal decision. With 38.12 seconds, Julian Rios (LAC Team of the Year), Joshua Hartmann (ASV Köln), Deniz Almas (Wolfsburg) and Lucas Ansah Bebra (Hamburger SV) each finished six hundred per cent during Thursday’s race period and were sixth. . place.
In his last race in the national team jersey, Julian Reuss was the first German player to take to the track. Switching to Joshua Hartmann worked perfectly, and Denise Almas was also able to accept the baton without wasting much time. Going from 2020 German champion to last runner-up Lucas Ansah-Bibera, the vote didn’t quite fit. But the gap in international competition was already large. The Hamburger SV athlete finished the German relay race in sixth place.
Voting for the contest:
Deniz Almas (Wolfsburg VFL):
I think we had a solid race. It was a little more difficult in the third lane than it was in the outer lane. We sold ourselves as much as possible. Unfortunately we have our stated goal [deutscher Rekord] it did not arrive. But we hit the average target for the Olympic final. We are very proud of this. With sixth place and 38.12 seconds, only a tenth higher than the German record. It would have been possible today with better changes. It makes you very optimistic because it’s not about whether we’ll hit the German record – but when!
Joshua Hartmann (ASV Cologne):
We were in the Olympic final. We showed yesterday that we are relatively close to the top of the world and that everything is possible today. We did a good job today. We will take that with us for the next few weeks of training and then give our all for the European Championships on home soil next year.
Julian Rios (LC Top Team Thüringen):
You won’t see me on the career path anymore. For now, it’s still emotional. I struggled a bit more during the season towards Regensburg, towards the end of the nomination. Because of the global substitutions and Germany’s early championships, planning for the season was more difficult than usual, and I tended to be more emotional. I was able very well to enjoy this here, the guys have supported me very well, the carefree transport was probably just as good as the calm conveys itself. It’s good that the last race was an Olympic final. Unfortunately, No. 37 was not on top. Denise put it well: the question is not if, but when. I’m sure of that. I’m glad the sprinter in Germany is on the right track. He can resign with a clear conscience.
Lucas Ansah Bebra (Hamburger SV):
The change wasn’t perfect. I tend to start a little earlier in the competition. I wanted to make sure I start exactly this time. That day didn’t work out well, but I tried to gain meters in the back. But what was happening at first was brutal and powerful.
