It was a year ago in Birmingham, when they would be landed with a 7-seconds-Lift in the highest floor up to the second floor, where only the top is. Third was Mujinga Kambundji at the indoor world Cup, "7.03 seconds before the Swiss Championships were impressive, had told the people but nothing," she says. "What is the meaning of a world Cup bronze medal, the did you know almost exactly."
Those world Cup performance in, which is 7.05 seconds had been for the from Berne of the door opener and the Swiss record before the beginning of their most successful year. What the medal meant for you, she knew immediately: "That I had been right to listen to me, to go my way. Over the years I've learned what's good for me in Training and what is less," says the 26-Year-old. In the autumn, prior to that, she had separated from Valerj builders and their training base in Mannheim exit, and a commitment by the Dutchman Henk Kraaijenhof ended prematurely. Despite the chaotic-seeming circumstances, the success was not long in coming. And he gave her self-confidence. In the future, they also belonged to the Diamond League Meetings abroad to the Loaded.
Fudge, the optimizer
Today is the day that Kambundji to Meta Antenen (1974), Sandra Gasser (1987), and Selina Büchel (2015, 2017) the fourth Swiss indoor European champion could be. Their arrival in Glasgow was short, they came on Wednesday from London, where she trained since the late fall in intervals with the former British national coach, Steve Fudge. She describes him as a Trainer, you know that you have the important parts of your puzzle, "he knows that it's about optimization". Than you should decide whether your training future lies in England, made by Adi Roth, bühler, your tutor in Bern, to accompany a conversation. "Fudge said that my records of 10,95 and 7.03 speak for themselves and he told the like to take," she said.
the ridge is at the highest level, however, is very narrow and the competition is huge, has experienced Kambundji at the European Championships in Berlin. She ran two very good races over 100 and 200 metres, to be handed a medal for this, however, in the one as in the other. There are two fourth places remained to the completion of the season. "Since then, I know that I need to make things – all of them – perfect," she says. And because today, your distance is 200 or 100, but only 60 meters are not, everything goes a bit faster.
The psychological advantage
The 7,08 seconds, with which she was most recently in St. Gallen, Swiss champion, put you briefly to the top of the year world's best list. Now, two weeks later, she goes along with the Polish woman, Ewa Swoboda still the fastest in Europe at the Start (Final 21.35 PM) and want to stay that way. The EM-Medal winner from Berlin, the native of talent, Dina Asher-Smith, Dafne Schippers (NED) and Gina gap Kemper (GER), all are not there, at least a psychological advantage.
This is also a team mate from London on occurs, in addition to their Swiss colleagues Ajla Del Ponte, Sarah Atcho and Riccarda Dietsche with Asha Philips. But it is not only that, but Philips is defending champion. "She's one of the reasons why I chose this group, I was also in Training to a higher level," says Kambundji. Who has benefited up to now from whom, however, could not account for. The Swiss manage today, but in a perfect Competition, there would be the title, at least in the group. And the rivalry would be for the whole season a new Note.
