Boulder / USA (dpa) – European obstacle champion Gesa Krause trains in the middle of the corona pandemic in Boulder / USA.
“The only plan was to stay until March 31 and then fly to South Africa after Potchefstroom. But that was completely canceled, so I’ll stay here for the time being, »said the 27-year-old athlete from Frankfurt / Main in an interview with the« Frankfurter Rundschau ». «It is an uncanny feeling when you see that the whole of Germany is paralyzed. And it’s the same here. »
Krause has not given up hope that competitions will still take place this season. «The first three Diamond League competitions were canceled. It will continue to do so now. I can not imagine that you can have it under control again until May to organize such competitions. I hope you can make it to the Olympics, ”said the World Cup third. The Summer Games in Tokyo were “not the last event I’m training for,” she said: “It will pay off sometime – whenever that will be.”
