Alica Schmidt was snubbed from the joining Germany’s 2021 Tokyo Olympic team, but insists that her full focus is on her track and field career. Schmidt finished fifth in the second heats of the World Athletics Championships and failed to qualify for the final in the 4x400m mixed relay. However, remains in high spirits despite the early exit in Eugene.
She wrote on her Instagram, “Not the result we wanted in yesterday‘s 4×4 mixed relay and we know that we are capable of a lot more. But heads up and on to the next one! 4x400m relay on Saturday next week. Nevertheless I‘m thankful to be here on my first World Championships and gain a lot of experience.”
