Jaroslav won the silver medal at European Marathon Championship! Only Jaro’s teammate and reingning World Champion Christoph Sauser was faster on a beautiful and challenging course in
Ballyhoura, Northern Ireland.
“I am glad, I finally had a good race! Right at the beginning we flat out with Susi and left others. I pulled the first thirty kilometers, we went full gas and built big lead in the front. At the end, on the wide roads Christoph was stronger. I’ve tried to catch him, but the gap between us still got bigger, ” said Jaroslav after 93km’s of racing.
“I’m happy of that, because after my crash in Albstadt, I’ve trained only about six days. There were the same athletes who should fight for the rainbow jersey for 14 days in Pietermaritzburg, Africa, so I have to get in better shape and hope It will be good there!” said before UCI Marathon World Championship.
