At the finals in Berlin, the pole vaulter from Leverkusen increased his personal best by nine centimeters in the Olympic Stadium.

He not only becomes the fourth German champion, but also positions himself third in the world list.

Chemnitz Max Hess (16.20 meters) wins in the triple jump, Samantha Borutta from Leverkusen (67.09 meters) in the women's hammer throw in the morning.

At the multisport event “the Finals” in Berlin, there are a total of 190 decisions in 14 sports over four days – it is not easy to keep track of so much sport in a very small space and in a very short time frame.

Here's a rundown of Saturday's highlights.

Laura Lindemann wins the German championship in triathlon over the sprint distance.

The day before her 26th birthday begins for her with a 750 meter swim at the Wannsee lido.

After 20 kilometers of cycling and five kilometers of running, she finally prevailed over Annika Koch and Nina Eim at the finish on the Olympic square.

She then praised the event: “The audience was super cool and the grandstands were full.

It was a lot of fun to compete in front of so many people”.

Canoeists and rowers take to the water on the City-Spree.

Peter Kretschmer prevailed there at the East Side Gallery with the canoe one in the parallel sprint in front of defending champion Nico Pickert.

Bronze goes to Tim Hecker from Berlin.

Jule Hake from Lünen won the final in the women's kayak singles in a parallel sprint against Paulina Paszek (Hanover).
