European marathon champion Richard Ringer wants to create the conditions for participation in the Olympic Games in Paris early on at the 37th edition of the Hamburg marathon on April 23 next year. On Wednesday, the 33-year-old from LC Rehlingen explained at a press conference organized by the organizer that he didn’t just aim for the norm of 2:09:40 hours. Ringer referred to the large number of strong German runners and emphasized: “I’m not based on records, I’m based on myself.” The fact that a time in the range of his personal best of 2:08:49 would be enough to undercut the norm would not be enough for him. | 11/30/2022 15:03
