Marcell Jacobs has a big day on May 28, 2022, when he runs the 100m at the Nike Pre Classic against one of the finest fields assembled in a Diamond League meet (let’s see, Andre De Grasse, Fred Kerley, Ronnie Baker, Noah Lyles, Marvin Bracy, Kenny Bednarek, and Christian Coleman).
Marcell Jacobs, aka Crazy Long Jumper, will be racing the 100 meters in Savona, Italy tomorrow.

SAVONA (ITA): Initially due to compete in the 200m in Savona (WACT Challenger) on Wednesday, Marcell Jacobs will contest the 100m instead. He will face his relay teammates Eseosa Desalu and Lorenzo Patta as well as former European record-holder Jimmy Vicaut. This will be his first race of the outdoor season after illness forced him to scratch from the Kip Keino Classic in Nairobi. In the shot put, leading Italians Zane Weir and Nick Ponzio take on former European and world champion David Storl and Mesud Pezer.
