A discomfort in the buttock felt yesterday after training and the decision, today, to forfeit, “as a precaution” at the Stockholm meeting of the Wanda Diamond League, where he was expected in the 100 meters for the last competitive match before the start for Eugene’s World Championships. There is no peace for Marcell Jacobs, once again forced to give up the 100 meters, the distance that saw him triumph at the Tokyo Olympics a year ago. The stakes are too important, the World Championships in Oregon are in two weeks and although there have only been two official distance runs, Jacobs has preferred not to risk tonight in Stockholm. “Since yesterday, after training, Marcell has felt a discomfort in the buttock, we cannot take the risk of running tonight. “, said Jacobs’ coach, Paolo Camossi who added:” Even this morning we evaluated the situation but his body gives signs of discomfort. Fifteen days before the World Championships we can’t take the risk of running tonight. “Intestinal problems in Kenya in early May and then a thigh strain in mid-May had already severely interrupted Jacobs’ preparation for Eugene’s World Championships. The sprinter Azzurro raced only in two official races, on May 18 in Savona (9 “99 windy and 10” 04) and twice at the Assoluti di Rieti (10 “17 and 10” 12), where he won the fifth consecutive Italian title in specialty, skipping the Golden Gala in Rome and the Diamond League stage in Oslo. After Tokyo and before Savona, due to other physical problems, Jacobs had no longer run the queen race of speed. He would have had the opportunity at the beginning of May at the Kip Keino Classic, the Kenyan stage of the World Continental Tour. But on this occasion he had to give up due to a strong intestinal virus and simply watch the event on the television of the Ruaraka Uhai Neema Hospi Emergency Room tal. An unfortunate step in the run-up to the season that awaits him as a protagonist. Jacobs relied heavily on the Stockholm race as a top-level test to rediscover the sensations of the best days two weeks behind Eugene
