The words of Marcell Jacobs

Marcell Jacobs is aiming even higher, and after winning Olympic gold he dreams of doing something even more historic. “Usain Bolt is a giant. But on principle no record is out of reach.”

“My opponents I know well by now. Fred Kerley, of course, but also Trayvon Bromell, whom I appreciate very much humanly and in whose story I recognize myself, and Andre De Grasse, who has a great finish. Among the youngsters, we have to keep an eye on Jamaican Oblique Seville, whom I envy a lot because he is 21, and Botswana Letsile Tebogo, who is 19 and the world under-20 record holder,” he told Oasport.

“I am quite satisfied with last season, although an injury prevented me from running the World Championships in Eugene. My main goals, after winning the 2020 Olympics, the World Indoor Championships in the 60 meters, and the European Championships in the 100 meters, are the 100 meters at the World Championships in Budapest, the only race I’m missing to hit the grand slam in sprinting, but of course the most important goal is the Paris 2024 Olympics.”
