I’m back, Jacobs swear after the world withdraws-English

(ANSA)-Rome, July 18-Italy’s Marcel Jacobs withdraws from the 100-meter semifinal at the World Championships in Athletics in Eugene over the weekend after suffering the injuries of the Olympic champions this season. I swore that I had to. For damage to the thigh muscles.

“It was a tough decision,” Jacobs said via social media, adding that he was keen to take on his rivals at Eugene, even if his preparations were hit by fitness problems.

“But to avoid the risk of more serious injuries, we need to postpone this showdown to the next major race after a full recovery.

“I make this promise to the Italian people and my fans-I will do my best to keep you dreaming.”

The 27-year-old won the 100 meters at last year’s Olympics and helped Italy win the gold medal at the 4×100 relay in Tokyo. (ANSA).
