Konstanze Klosterhalfen brought the next highlight to German athletics in Munich.
The 25-year-old was the first German to win EM gold over 5000 meters.
After a strong performance in the Munich Olympic Stadium, she won in 14:50.47 minutes, clearly ahead of Yasemin Can from Turkey (14:56.91) and Eilish McColgan from Great Britain (1:59.34).
It was also the first European Championship medal for a German runner over this distance.
Klosterhalfen has long been considered an exceptional talent in German athletics.
The 25-year-old holds a number of German records on medium and long distances and has already taken part in the Olympic Games in Rio 2016 and Tokyo 2021.
Her biggest international success so far was a bronze medal at the World Championships in Doha 2019.
