Decathlete Kaul at the European Championships: “Better than ever”
For medal contender Niklas Kaul, the decathlon at the home European Championships in Munich has top priority this season. “Objectively, of course, a World Cup is worth more, but a European Championship in my own country is more valuable to me personally,” said the 24-year-old from Mainz in an interview with Deutsche Sporthilfe published on Friday. “My goal is to sit in the first discipline in Munich in the 100-meter block and be in better physical condition than ever before.”
At the World Championships three weeks earlier, Kaul had finished sixth with 8434 points. When he won the 2019 World Cup in Doha/Qatar, he had set the record of 8691 points that is still valid today. World champion and world record holder Kevin Mayer (France) has also registered for the medal fight on Monday and Tuesday in Munich’s Olympic Stadium. In addition to Kaul, there are three other German starters: defending champion Arthur Abele, Tim Nowak (both Ulm) and Kai Kazmirek (Rhein-Wied).
Kaul has come to terms with the setback from the Olympic Games in Tokyo, when he gave up injured after four disciplines – even if he describes his retirement as “very, very annoying in retrospect”. The early exit in Japan is now his motivation for the 2024 Summer Games. “I would like to make it easier in Paris than in Tokyo,” said Kaul. “In Japan we also experienced Olympic Games like they’ve never been before, without spectators, without being able to see other sports.” That’s why he wants to experience the games in Paris as they actually are: “That makes the drive special. And of course I want to be able to deliver a best performance in Paris 2024 – then we’ll see what that’s enough for.”
Mihambo will “not lose trust” after corona infection
With long jump Olympic champion Malaika Mihambo, after her corona infection before the start of the European Championships in Munich, there is a degree of uncertainty. “I realize how difficult it is when you’re preparing from cold pants when you can’t really assess it,” said the 28-year-old.
After her corona infection, which was made public this week, the track and field athlete from LG Kurpfalz finally decided on Friday to start at the European Championships. The long jump qualification is scheduled for Tuesday, and the medals will be awarded on Thursday in the Olympic Stadium.
“I think it’s just important that I don’t lose confidence in myself, but always firmly believe that I can do it because I certainly haven’t lost that much substance,” said Mihambo, who is a mentally very strong athlete. “I might not jump 7.31 now, but I can still jump over seven meters for sure. But you really have to tell yourself that every day and trust yourself.”
Three weeks ago, Mihambo successfully defended her world title at the World Championships in the USA. In Munich she is also the defending champion.
Klosterhalfen hunt for medals on the long distance
The best German long-distance runner Konstanze Klosterhalfen goes into the European Athletics Championships in Munich with a better feeling than at the last World Championships in Eugene. At the World Championships in her adopted home USA, the Leverkusen woman had also missed the final over 5000 meters, weakened by the consequences of a corona infection. At the Diamond League meeting in Chorzow, Klosterhalfen had finished seventh over 3000 meters in the run-up to the European Championship.
“Purely in terms of feeling, it was a clear difference to Eugen, because I felt that I was competitive again,” said the 25-year-old in retrospect in an interview with Sport1. “Coming back to your own racing feeling and no longer just having to deal with yourself, but being able to take part in the race, that’s what’s fun.”
In Munich, Klosterhalfen started on the first day of the EM this Monday evening (9:48 p.m. / ZDF) over 10,000 meters. After that, they will also compete on this distance three years after the World Championships bronze in the 5000 meters. Klosterhalfen did not name specific goals.
“I’m generally happy when it’s a fast race right from the start,” she said. “In Munich it’s about taking the positive feeling from the competition in Poland with you and now showing the performance from the training of the past few weeks in the competition.”
Sprinter Lückenkemper is “right in the mood” for Munich
Sprinter Gina Lückenkemper hopes to create a completely different kind of euphoria with the German team. “I’m really in the mood. I’m really happy to let the track burn in Munich,” said Lückenkemper: “I think it’s going to be an incredibly beautiful championship.” The German sprinters had delivered the other German medal alongside Mihambos’ gold with relay bronze at the World Cup. Overall, the 25-year-old finds the mood in the host team to be very good and the enthusiasm for the European Championship very high.
Lückenkemper can again sprint for precious metal with the 4×100 meter relay. With Tatjana Pinto, Rebekka Haase and Alexandra Burghardt, the four women have good chances against the European competition.
The earth presents scientists with new mysteries
