Track Beauty of the Week: Verena Sailer
October 23, 2010Posted by on
Verena Sailer is this week’s track beauty!
The German sprinter came first international breakthrough in an individual event came at the 2009 European Indoor Championships, where Sailer won bronze. As a junior, the powerfully built Verena finished 5th at the 2004 World Junior Championships in Grossetto. The 24-year old and the rest of the German 4x100m relay quartet, performed magnificently in front of the home crowd at the 2009 World Championships.
The Bavarian-born Verena competes for the MTG-Mannheim athletics club.
The German sprint queen was slowed down by a spate of injuries at the start of the 2010 season. But gradually, she recovered her fine form. In the Barcelona European Championships, Verena stopped the clock at a new personal best of 11.10s, winning an unexpected gold by the infinitesimal of margins.
This is a long overdue post! I originally wanted to do a Track Beauty post as soon as Verena stamped her class in the Barcelona century dash field.
As they say, it’s better late than never!
