Wellbrock girlfriend with short journey to EM

At the Zurzbahn-European Champion, World Champion Florian Cellblock wins his first international medal in the 25-meter basin and becomes European champion. Totally surprisingly, his teammate Sven brings bronze.

It was a perfect race. The first medal on the short train and then gold, that s very cool, Cellblock said. 14: 09.88 minutes mean German record, and it is no longer far to Paltriness World Record (14: 08.06). This time was quite in the field of the 24-year-old. That annoys me a little that I did not pack that, Cellblock said.

Early the expected duel drew

The race became expected duel between Paltriness and the German. Already after 100 meters, the two had settled in the turn carousel. Cellblock was mostly an arm length in front of the Italian, who could no longer grow from half of the race at a residue of 0.51 seconds. Above all, when Cellblock strangely tightened the pace after 1000 meters, the preliminary decision had fallen. But actually I knew after 500 meters that I had the thing under control. Especially with the turning I was clear better, and that s why Gregorio did not really run, said the world champion in the big basin.

Cellblock had been trained intensively in the past week, after the 400-meter lead at this em already realized that he is fast and then not reported for the final to focus on the prolonged routes. We wanted to secure the gold medal, said the protégé of national coach Bernd Berghain, who now also strives for the title over 800 meters.

Completely out of the cottage was Sven black. I just did not expect that, I think I ve just given my best here, just out of the 19th anniversary Hanoverian. It s just five seconds to the silver medal, Black said, who increased his personal best time by five seconds. Bronze he secured himself with a strong final spurt.
