Jacobs phenomenon

Hug on the track of the Olympic stadium in Rome on the occasion of the Golden Gala between Marcell Jacobs and Gianmarco Tamberi, respectively Olympic champion of 100 meters and of the high jump in the magical Tokyo evening of August 1, 2021. Jacobs, showing up wearing a black hat, white shirt and Bermuda shorts, will not inflame the Roman night following a slight injury. “I would like to run my legs, but unfortunately things don’t always go in the best way. The goal is to go to the World Championships and still have a lot of fun.” After the meeting in Savona in mid-May, Marcell accused a first degree distraction-elongation which is in the recovery phase. Jacobs then posed for customary photos also with Massimo Stano and Antonella Palmisano, Olympic champions of the 20 km walk.
