CHEMNITZ (GER): Despite breaking the German triple jump record with 14.59m in Chemnitz, Kristin Gierisch is prioritising medals over records, informs Leichtathletik.de. "Records can be broken. Medals are more important, they stay forever. But it's also nice to know that I can jump as far as no other German," she said. Gierisch added that she had a marginal no-jump of a similar distance in Madrid on Friday night and that she believes she can extend her record out to 14.80m.
