Athletics: Jacobs eyeing worlds after winning nationals

'My head's already in Eugene' says Olympic champ

(ANSA) - ROME, JUN 27 - Olympic 100m gold medalist Marcell Jacobs says his sights are on the world championships in Eugene, Oregon in mid-July after winning the Italian national title for the fifth straight time in Rieti on Saturday, in a relatively modest time of 10.2 seconds.
    "The time is just a number, my head is already in Eugene," Jacobs said on his Instagram profile, telling fans he was "happy" to be back after a recent injury and saying "see you in Stockholm next week", referring to a Diamond League event.
    The 27-year-old El Paso born Azzurro, who won the world indoor championships a couple of months ago, picked up double gold in Tokyo after also helping the Azzurri win the 4x100m relay.
