A Double for Antje Möldner at German Indoors in Karlsruhe A Double for Antje Möldner at German Indoors in Karlsruhe

A runner was the only athlete who managed a double at the German indoor championships in Karlsruhe during the past weekend: Antje Möldner won the 1,500 m and the 3,000 m. First she clocked 9:14,69 minutes on Saturday, then she ran 4:29,13 minutes a day later. But the quality of the running events at these championships was low key.

In the 3,000 m neither Irina Mikitenko nor Sabrina Mockenhaupt was competing. So there was no danger for Antje Möldner in both events. She relied on her finishing kick – and that worked fine. “For parts of the race the 1,500 metres were not faster than the 3,000 metres the day before”, Antje Möldner said.

Jan Fitschen concentrate on training for summer season 

Quality of the 800 m races was hardly any better. Kerstin Werner took the women’s title with  2:08,06 while René Herms celebrated his fifth straight win in this event. He clocked 1:48,34. It was slightly better in the 1,500 m. Stefan Eberhardt won this event with 3:42.24. While he will compete at the World Indoor Championships at the end of next week Jan Fitschen decided to concentrate on training fort he summer season. Fitschen won the 3,000 m in convincing style, clocking 7:53.14 minutes.
