Dream of a medal comes true: Julian Weber wins European Championship gold in the javelin throw

He just missed out on a medal at the Tokyo Olympics. Julian Weber now wins gold at the European Athletics Championships in Munich. With 87.66 meters, the 27-year-old beat the competition in the javelin throw.

Julian Weber has fulfilled his dream of a medal and won European Championship gold. The man from Mainz beat Jakub Vadlejch (Czech Republic/87.28) and Finn Lassi Etelätalo (86.44) on the final day of the athletics competition in Munich's Olympic Stadium with 87.66 meters.

Weber narrowly missed out on a medal in fourth place at the 2021 Olympic Games in Tokyo and at the World Championships in Eugene last month. Now he was rewarded, the 27-year-old managed the best throw in the fourth attempt.

Andreas Hofmann (Mannheim), Vice European Champion from Berlin, missed the final battle in tenth place (74.75). Rio Olympic champion and defending champion Thomas Röhler (Jena) did not get past 71.31 m in qualifying and was eliminated. The Thuringian, who recently had to struggle with injuries again and again, had a wild card for the EM as European champion in 2018. The German record holder Johannes Vetter (Offenburg) had to cancel his start at the European Championships due to injury.
