As, the barrel of Braunschweig should be less quick than the before? The Beck messerei is, the document which showed a hundredth of a second more to mention, on the stop-watch in Braunschweig. Yet, this result does not reflect the pure truth. The time of Talent as the 23-year-old Alma is one, is yet to come. In which Tempus could speculate better than in the subjunctive? The time from Braunschweig to goes like this: The path in the Eintracht-Stadion is softer than the famous pace-Straight from Weinheim. In addition, no breeze was as Alma in the sweltering heat supply, in contrast to the 1.4-Meter-wind of Weinheim back.

Have, therefore, the fate or the God of athletics with an invisible Hand for the maximum legal 2.0 meters of thrust per second, as the experts agree, would be Alma's for a week, the first German runner with a best time in the a Nine in front of the comma. It goes So fast. The German record of Julian Reus, expressed in Braunschweig in the third, four years ago, on 10,01 seconds. The Olympic champion, Armin Hary ran his world record of 10.0 seconds in 1958, on the cinder track; the hand-stopped time is converted according to the current scale in 10,20 seconds. And 9.99 seconds, the Martin Keller ran seven years ago in Florida, could not be recognized due to strong tail-winds.

Not only the time is on the side of Deniz Alma. Because he was in Leipzig, where he trained for three years and studied, and where, more recently, the Bundeswehr supports, three coaches and a rousing training group, speaks of the Sprinter in contrast to the idea that the men of his profession, not of I, I, I, but the We. The former model Sven Knipphals his fitness trainer is; by him the in Calw in the Northern black forest-born and bred of Alma has inherited the membership of the VfL Wolfsburg.

The former hurdles Sprinter Alexander John for the technical aspects of the Sprints, and together with national coach Ronald stone, the two develop from the industrious workers of Alma the currently outstanding Sprinter in Germany. Every day he has to measure in Training with the competitors, Marvin Schulte, and Robert herring, the hurdles Gregor Traber Erik Balnuweit sprinters. "The training group is worth Gold," he says. His Generation, led by the 21-year-old Joshua Hartmann of Cologne, Second in the German championship in of 10.28 seconds, gives him a We-feeling. One or the other of them, he predicts, will the sound barrier of the ten seconds probably break through.

This is part of its strength, just not the time to run. The new best time comes to implement concentrated all of what he developed in Training. As his explosive Start and his newfound ability to set beyond the sixty meters, where in the Sprint, the fatigue sets in, far ahead of the feet and not to lose practically in free flight, the grip and the propulsion are.
