Gesa Felicitas KRAUSE - Germany - 2016: European steeplechase champion. 6th at Olympic Games.

Gesa-Felicitas Krause jumps over a barrier on the back straight in the final of

the women's 3,000 metres steeplechase ahead of the runner up Luiza Gega

(setting a National record).


Gesa-Felicitas herself was recording the fastest time in Europe thus far that year, though slower

than her best time of 9:19.25 set in Beijing 26th August 2015 at the World Championships.

(At the Olympics a month later she ran even faster.)
