Krause “disappointed” by German track race guidance

The German Athletic Federation’s guidance for organisers of stadium athletics offers advice on sprints and runs up to 800m, jumps and throws as competitions in which the hygiene and distance regulations can be observed.

It is suggested that the 800m could be run entirely in lanes while leaving every second lane free.

Two-time European 3000m steeplechase champion Gesa Felicitas Krause registered her disappointment: “I’m speechless! [It’s] a decision that I do not understand and that I cannot support in any sense! Corona is and was a big topic, but you play football with 22 athletes in full swing on the pitch… shouldn’t that be possible at a championship final with eight to twelve runners?”
