Jacobs, who only switched from the long jump in 2018, chose to rest for the remainder of 2021 after his surprise double success in Tokyo.

And in his first race back he won his heat in 6.57, with his winning time in the final just short of his PB (6.47), set in March 2021.

“Last year I started my season here and it was the beginning of an unforgettable year. So it was a good to start in Berlin again. I had a very long time with no competitions after Tokyo but I really needed to recover mentally and physically,“ said Jacobs

Jacobs went on to break the 10-second barrier for the 100m for the first time last May, six weeks before winning Olympic gold in 9.80.
