Athletics: Jacobs misses Stockholm meet due to glute niggle

Olympic 100m champ pulls out as a precaution on road to Eugene

(ANSA) - ROME, JUL 1 - Olympic 100m champ Marcell Jacobs skipped Thursday night's Diamond League meet in Stockholm as a precautionary measure with a glute niggle to best prepare for the world championships in Eugene, Oregon in mid-July.
    Jacobs has said his sights are on the worlds after winning the Italian national title for the fifth straight time in Rieti last 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.
    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.
