I just had to stay be careful not to make a mistake at the start, but I worked hard “. These are the first words of Marcell Jacobs after beating the Italian record of 100, “I was a bit tense, because I was the first to have high expectations – he told Rai microphones -. In the final I am sure that I will be able to race in looser way, and with the stimulus of an opponent at my side I think I can repeat myself or improve even more. Especially in the first part of the race, if I have someone next to me, I can increase my speed “.
