It was a spectacular event that took place in the Olympic Park.

The triathlon at the European Championships created a great atmosphere.

Munich – Hearing also plays a role in triathlon – in normal competitions.

Laura Lindemann says that when you run, you can tell if and how close you have someone behind you.

"But here you hear absolutely nothing." In the mixed team relay in the Olympic Park, she looked around for a pursuer and was surprised: "She was really far away."

The triathlon is already over at the European Championships, the triathlon caravan is moving on to the next training camp.

She does it elatedly, because Munich offered an extraordinary experience.

So far, the benchmark for triathlon festival atmosphere has been the event in Hamburg in and around the Alster.

"Hamburg is good, but I have to admit that this is even better," explained Jonas Schomburg, the best German in seventh place among the men.

The participants were particularly enthusiastic about the four rounds of running – each with a climb to the Olympic mountain.

“Tour de France feeling” is how Schomburg described his feelings as he ran through the trellis of enthusiastic spectators.

That a course contains such gradients (four times 35 meters in altitude) is unusual.

"Profiled track - something different," said Lasse Lührs (18th place).

The German Triathlon Union was happy with the performance: Silver for Laura Lindemann in the women's category, and she was part of the mixed relay alongside Nina Eim, Valentin Wernz and Simon Henseleit, who also finished second.

"Both medals are important to me, each in their own way," said Lindemann.

And also from her the comparison Hamburg – Munich.

"Are similar, but Munich is awesome." 24,000 fans came on Saturday.

The Olympiasee was critically assessed – an emergency solution.

Lasse Lührs pointed to the stomach area of ​​his one-piece suit: "Full of algae.

And the course with the many buoys is not so great.” gük
