Will there be another big sprint final between Emma Heinz and Lee Frederick? The two top German sprinters are in the World Cup semi-finals. German women, on the other hand, left four empty handed.
On an otherwise rather grim day for the German track cycling team at the World Championships in Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines, France, top German sprinters once again provided the highlight.
Defending champions Emma Heinz and Lee Sophie Friedrich advanced to the sprint semi-finals and took another German medal. Frederick in particular was confident in merit and sovereign victory with the best of times.
Grabosh Missed a Surprise
Hinge, on the other hand, had more trouble than expected, but still managed to overcome it. Hinge meets Mathilde Gross in the semifinals. Friedrich has to deal with former speed skater Laurin van Riesen from the Netherlands.
Pauline Grabosch missed a surprise when she missed Van Rissen in the quarterfinals. After all, she had previously knocked out Tokyo Olympic champion Kelsey Mitchell from Canada.
No medals for women’s fours
For the German Women’s Four, which has changed significantly in terms of personnel, the last chance for the precious metal is shattered. The two Tokyo Olympic champions Mikey Kroger and Franziska Bruce, along with newcomers Lina Charlotte Reisner and Lee Lynn Teutenberg, missed out on making the short final with a sixth-best time.
There was also a disappointment for former sprint world champion Stefan Bauticher, who was the last German to finish in the Kerin quarter-finals.
