Wagner: “But first I want to confirm my performance from the season. The World Cup has new experiences, a new environment of international competition.
Of course: Wagner is following in the footsteps of German record holder Julian Reuss (34), who ended his career last year. Incidentally, his best time was 10.01 seconds. Wagner also likes to speed up time.
