Athletics World Championships: Marcell Jacobs suffers, but goes to the semifinals in 10 “04 in the 100 meters
Written by aquitodovale

Marcell Jacobs makes his debut at the World Athletics Championships in Eugene, United States, closing his battery in second position with a time of 10”04. Tomorrow he will be in the semifinals, but the many physical problems are limiting him: “I’m sick, not very well. After this battery even worse than yesterday, but I throw myself and as it goes, it goes ”. Out instead Chituru Ali. The 4×100 mixed relay finishes seventh in the final (3’16”45).

In the end, his is the tenth time trial of the day. Of course, for Marcell Jacobs he is not doing very well in view of the 100-meter semifinal won during the night in Eugene (United States) on the occasion of the World Athletics Championships. The Tokyo 2020 Olympic champion makes 10”04 in his battery, finishing second behind the young Jamaican Oblique Seville (9”93). It is evident that the Lombard sprinter is not and cannot be brilliant, given the long period in narrow gauge. Yet tomorrow he will do everything to access the final act.

“I’m sick, not great. After this battery even worse than yesterday, but I throw myself and as it goes, it goes. I liked the reaction time, the best one ever, but I couldn’t move forward. When you have problems in running it is difficult to advance, but I will do all night in physiotherapy to find this advancement ”. Jacobs also commented on the performance of the opponents, who literally went wild: Fred Kerley printed a 9”79 granite and Travyon Bromell responded with 9”89. Marcell Jacobs smiles: “The others are in super shape, but it’s only the first round. We will then have to see what will happen in the final ”.

Nothing to do, however, for Chituru Ali. The Lombard sprinter fails to shine as he would have liked in the 100 meter heats and closes his heats in sixth position with the high time of 10 “ 40 (0.1 m / s headwind). A time trial that the 23-year-old cannot satisfy, given that this season he had run an excellent 10”15 and at the Italian Championships he was the protagonist of an exciting shoulder to shoulder with Jacobs himself.

THE OTHER RACES
Italy closes seventh in the final of the 4×400 mixed. Benati, Folorunso, Lopez and Mangione pay for the morning effort and print the time of 3’16”45. The gold medal goes to the Dominican Republic (3’09”82): the Dutch quartet beaten (3’09”90), with the USA (3’10”16) only third due to the collapse in the final of Simon. who seemed to be on the verge of victory.

Azzurri out of the game medals in the 20 km walk. Among the men, the best is Francesco Fortunato, who finishes 15th with a time of 1h22’50 ”; more detached the other blue, Gianluca Picchiottino, 32nd in 1h28’33 ”. The Japanese Yamanishi wins in 1h19’07 ”. It is the Peruvian Kimberly Garcia Leon who takes gold among women. Beautiful race of Valentina Trapletti, who closes eighth. Nicole Colombi was disqualified before km 14.

Ahmed Abdelwahed conquers the final of the 3,000-meter steeplechase with the fifth repechage time (8’21”04). The best of the round was the Moroccan Soufiane El Bakkali (8’16”65). Nick Ponzio qualifies for the shot put final with a nice shoulder from 21.35 meters that earns him the provisional fourth place. Gaia Sabbatini flies to the semifinals of 1,500 meters with the fifth place in the battery (4’07”82) won by the Ethiopian Hirut Meshesha. Eliminate the other blue Sintayehu Vissa and Federica Del Buono.

Sara Fantini goes big to overcome the hammer throw qualifications: the blue wins the world championship final with the measure of 72.38, which is worth sixth overall. Atrocious disappointment for Roberta Bruni, who had presented herself with the fourth world performance of the season (her Italian record of 4.71) and instead fails to exceed 4.50 meters in the pole vault. The Roman is eliminated with 4.35, passed at the second test: it would have been enough to do it at the first to access the final act.
