(ANSA) – ROME, AUGUST 19 – “Following a discussion that took place in the afternoon with the technical management, at the request of the president Stefano Mei, Fidal expresses its appreciation towards Marcell Jacobs and his staff, in particular towards of coach Paolo Camossi, for having once again shown willingness, self-denial, generosity and team spirit for the Azzurri shirt “. It is the note of thanks from the Italian Athletics Federation to the 100-meter Olympian who was unable to take part in the 4X100 relay.

“As is known, Marcell Jacobs, in the final that gave us the gold on the 100 meters – continues the note – felt a functional overload in his left calf. Considering his participation in the heats of the 4×100 relay essential for the qualification for the final, Marcell and his staff were asked to make themselves available in any case, despite their perplexities due to the risk that the athlete would face and despite having therefore foreseen his use only in the final “.

“The progress of the preliminary phases of the warm-up highlighted the worsening of the discomfort felt in the previous days, and made it necessary to definitively exclude the use of the athlete in the first round of the relay”, concludes Fidal.
