Yes, and German laufen is related to Swedish löpa (with roughly the same meaning as springa, but mainly used in sports. ) which also is realated to English leap.
"De" and "dem" are both pronounced "dom" and are the same word but the spelling depends on the context.
Hjälp! Jag kan inte ... (switches to English :D) find how to correctly pronounce this word, it's hard to tell if they're pronouncing G or the Swedish J instead - is it SprinGer, SprinJer, or Sprinner? It definitely sounds like a G, but I'm not a 100% sure about it.
Thanks for the reply! It's an older comment, but now I know how to pronounce it - it's like a light "touch" of "G".
Couldn't it be translated as "They sprint" as well? Actually, "sprint" derived from "springer/insertoldnorsehere", amirite?
