Marcell Jacobs Wins European 100m in 9.95
August 16, 2022
Marcell Jacobs is the king of European sprinting.
The Italian Olympic champ who has been dogged by injuries in 2022 won the European Athletics Championship 100m in a meet record 9.95, as defending champ Zharnel Hughes of Great Britain was second in 9.99. British champ Jeremiah Azu got the bronze in 10.13. Israel Olatunde set a Irish record in 6th in 10.17.
Questions about Jacobs’ fitness disappeared in the semi-finals when Jacobs ran 10.00.
He came back less than 2 hours later to get the gold.
What a 100m run from Italy's Lamont Jacobs 👏🔥
