Gina Lokenkemper and Lamont Marcel Jacobs won the European title in the 100 metres. The women’s final in particular had an exciting conclusion, as three women crossed the finish line side by side.

Mujinga Kamponge of Switzerland was ahead, but was overtaken in the final meters by 25-year-old Lokenkemper, who fell after crossing the line. Before the eyes of the German fans, she burst into tears when it became clear that she had won the Queen’s number in a time of 10.99.

The bronze went to Britain’s Daryl Netta, who took the bronze with a time of 0.01 from the winner.

Asher Smith withdrew

In the previous European Championships (2018), Lückenkemper won the silver, with a score of 0.14 from Dina Asher-Smith. The Brits were also the frontrunners, but she pulled out after a few meters with a hamstring injury.

Watch the men’s and women’s 100m finals in the carousel:
