Buchholz wins bronze at

Niklas buchholz from TSV hemhofen took third place over the 2000-meter distance at the german youth handicap championships in monchengladbach. In the u20s, the german U18 handicap champion from 2015 had to take the motto "do it again, niklas" beaten only by lennart mesecke (LG nord-berlin) and jannik seelhofer (SC melle). With 5:47,41 minutes he snatched the place on the podium. Theodor schell of LSC hochstadt finished ninth among the 16 starters in the final in 6:01.76 minutes.

Buchholz fights against altere

Buchholz's task was comparatively difficult, because this year he competed in the u20s as a younger player against much more experienced opponents. The two youth world cup starters and eventual winners pressed the tempo from the start and immediately separated the field. Buchholz showed courage and tried to follow together with two other runners. The gap to the leaders became bigger after half of the race and so it came to a showdown for the third place in the three-headed chasing group on the home stretch.
Here the hemhofener mobilized unimagined forces and shook off a chaser before the last obstacle. Shortly before the finish line, he managed to intercept the other opponent and secured bronze. With a new best time and 18 seconds faster than in the previous year, he proved that the regular training at the base in erlangen under squad coach jorg stacker, coupled with the technical and coordination training with rudiger selig, has paid off in every respect.

Six weeks break
