6th in European champs a year later (but nowhere near the time he had in the 2013 final), then in 2015 he had exactly zero serious results (5 races, 4 of them really slow, 1 DNF), and after that DNF in June 2015 all I can find about him in terms of results is an indoor 500m (not impressive) in January of this year, so literally nothing last year.

 

Now I'm curious as well about the reasons for all that :p

Well he had problem with injuries. First one was in 2015. Then after few months he began to train normally and all was ok. He went on preparations in Spain and guess what? New injury. This one was very bizzare. He injured his leg (knee) at the gym. That was in april 2016. And that injury is not good at all.

 

In october he went to Czech Republic to train with Pavel Maslak and his coach, and he was there about 100 days, but it seems that again he had problem with his leg. He is now ok, I have him on instagram. We will see next year what will be.

 

Btw he is very nice person. He is always with smile on his face, I never heard from him bad words about all of this. I love to watch his interviews. A very smart and educated guy.

Anyone else had a look at the timetable?

Only days with morning sessions are days 2 & 3 (first weekend), day 8 (second friday) and days 9 & 10 (second weekend), all other days there wont be any competitions before 18:30 local time (19:30 german time). Not sure if i like it ...

Interesting that they are giving up 5 morning sessions, don't think that this is really in the athletes interest.
