The race was very important to us – especially because I now have confirmation that my training is headed for Tokyo. I would really like to start at the European Indoor Championships, but unfortunately it doesn’t fit. I hope you understand a little. As I said, thank you very much and see you soon. ”Lindemann recently had only a few opportunities to start and was therefore very happy about the DM approval, where she landed in second place over 3,000 meters behind Hanna Klein (LAV Stadtwerke Tübingen) with indoor European championship norm .
