PARIS, Sept. 3 (Xinhua) -- Astana's Alexey Lutsenko took one of the biggest victories of his career on Thursday as he took his first stage win at the Tour de France, beating second-placed Jesus Herrada by 55 seconds in the 191km-ride from Le Teil to Mont Aigoual.
Old dogs such as Toni Kroos (30/Real Madrid) and Manuel Neuer (34/Bayern Munich) might be an exception as they are pillar upon which he can build on.
"You can feel it in your body when you have a good throw, mostly you feel the whole energy behind it, from the right toe to the chest to the hands. In the javelin you need your whole body. But it's really hard to explain - you feel it for less than one second. But then you realize that it was a huge throw," he explained.
Germany took the reins and pressed forward whereas Spain looked shocked and unable to respond.
"I think lots of people didn't think it was possible to throw a javelin more than 95 meters in a closed stadium. I did it and I think there is a lot space for improvement. Very small differences, tiny differences, can make a difference of many meters."
Things nearly got a lot worse for Zall before going off at half-time, when the ever-lively Zhang broke free once again, but this time his shot was well saved by the goalpost.
In the men's singles, Russian players Daniil Medvedev and Andrey Rublev joined Thiem in the last eight while Australia's Alex De Minaur also advanced. Enditem
