At the world CHAMPIONSHIPS indooratletiek in the English Birmingham want the Belgian Tornados (Dylan Borlée, Kevin Borlée, Jonathan Borlée, Michaël Rossaert and Jonathan Sacoor) a place in the final of the 4×400 metres achieve. Coach Jacques Borlée warned though that this is not self-evident.
“We have a very nice team,” stated father Borlée to the press in the Ghent top-class sports, where the team previously have a training finished. “At the world cup, there is certainly a huge competition. The first goal is the final to achieve, what is not evident. But we have five athletes in shape and we go there with confidence.”
Also for the brothers Borléé there is trust. “The physical is there,” says Kevin Borlée, “but in the final it goes fast.” “We feel good. We will give everything”, said Jonathan Borlée. “The goal is the finals and that’s in it.”
The 18-year-old Jonathan Sacoor was last year on the substitute bench at the world CHAMPIONSHIPS in London. “I knew that I was in London not had to walk. There I have taught me not to let you do by the stresses,” says Sacoor. “I go myself to try to confirm as a fixed value in the 4x400meter team.”
During the training in the topsporthal in Gent was the fifth runner, Michaël Rossaert, fall. He was not present at the meeting with the press. What happened to him exactly, could not yet be reported.
