The German foursome won the first German gold medal in the team pursuit at the European Championships in Munich.

The team of Lisa Brennauer, Franziska Brausse, Mieke Kröger and Lisa Klein continued an impressive series.

The quartet had already won gold at the Tokyo 2021 Olympic Games.

In the mini-Olympic format in Munich, the team was the favorite.

With a time of 4:10.87 minutes, it also lived up to this role, with Italy finishing in second place.

Bronze went to France.

For Germany it was the second European Championship title in a row, but the last race in this formation.

Brennauer ended her career after the competition in Munich.

The 34-year-old will still compete in individual pursuits and road races.

The sprint continues straight away

The successful day for the Germans continued on the racetrack.

The world champions in team sprint won the next gold medal.

In the final, Emma Hinze, Pauline Grabosch and Lea Sophie Friedrich prevailed ahead of the Netherlands and Poland.

“It was a great team effort.

The atmosphere was amazing here, we were able to adapt well to the 200m track," Grabosch said in an ARD interview: "It was a very nice team sprint tournament." Hinze, Grabosch and Friedrich already had their favorites with clear best times in qualifying and the first round.

Second and fourth place in BMX Freestyle

Kim Lea Müller had previously caused a surprise.

The 20-year-old from Oldenburg won the silver medal in the BMX freestyle competition.

In the final, Müller won ahead of Laury Perez from France, while Iveta Miculycova from the Czech Republic secured the gold medal.

Medal contender Lara Lessmann, on the other hand, missed out on a podium place in fourth place.

Charlotte Worthington, the Tokyo Olympic champion, fell twice in the final and ended up in last place.
