strong catch-up from Ems
Starter Wernz completed his triathlon ready 7, adhered to by Nina Eims. The Potsdamer, who had actually inhabited the strong fourth place in singles, functioned to 3rd place at 30 degrees to 3rd area and therefore developed a great beginning point for the second half of the race.
I constantly thought that I can catch up, since no matter what the starting point is, I attempt to stay favorable, that functioned out fairly well. I hope that Simon can hold the position and after that at Laura Whatever in it, claimed Ems at the ARD microphone.
Henseleit works in second location
