Marcell Lamont Jacobs: “Thank you Liévin. I enjoy competing here. The crowd is fantastic. The track is very good. I want to return next year. Nothing has changed since my Olympic title. I train every day to reach my best form for the World Championships. I am not totally happy with my race. It’s always good to win against strong rivals, but today I felt better than last week and I thought that I could run faster. I can improve the first part of the race. I ran better in the second half. The most important thing is to win my first race as Olympic champion. I will compete in Ancona at the National Championships. It will be my first race on Italian soil as Olympic champion. The goal is to reach my best at the World Indoor Championships in Belgrade.”.
