Lamont Marcell Jacobs: Olympic 100m champion to return to action in February
Olympic 100m champion Lamont Marcell Jacobs will return to competitive action in Berlin in February.
The 27-year-old Italian since the Tokyo Games in August, where he also won 4x100m gold.
He has missed five Diamond League events, but competes at the Berlin indoor meet on 4 February.
His manager Marcello Magnani previously said injury was not a factor in Jacobs’ decision to take a break, but the time off is a preventative measure.
Jacobs, who only switched from long jump in 2018, became the first Italian to win the men’s 100m Olympic gold with his success in Tokyo.
