Race 3: 10:45. Finals. 160 meters away from the Torch, in Formula 1 positioning, hot temperatures and sand-containing air, we got down to business.
In an unprecedented racing process we started in a mass start. Based on the times and places in the 2 races on the day before, we were placed on our starting positions. The race went around the forecourt of the Aspire building and then 50 floors up. First, the qualified women started, then the men followed. Because of the packed staircase and the close to each other running athletes – a very interesting race emerged.
With many new adventures, interesting experiences, new friends and a ton of new impressions in a very short time – I took thankfully the plane back to Germany.
9 months ago at the European Championships I ended up somewhere on 39th place. This time I finshed the World Championships already on place 18. I’m on the way to the top!
