Sprinter Jacobs defeats reigning World Cup champion Coleman by 60 meters

Belgrade (AB) – Italy’s Lamond Marcel Jacobs won gold in the 60-meter dash at the World Indoor Championships in Belgrade. In the 100-meter dash, he defeated defending Olympic champion Christian Coleman of the United States by a narrow margin. The bronze went to another American, Marvin Brassi.

Jacobs came in at 6.41 seconds and was one thousandth of a second faster than Coleman. The American racer had a great start, but knocked off the line.

Coleman missed the 100-meter dash at the Tokyo Olympics last summer. The current world champion on this route was initially given a two-year suspension for failing three doping restrictions within a year. The international sports tribunal showed CAS some leniency and reduced the suspension to eighteen months, but Coleman did not come from Tokyo.
