Flash Interview Women Javelin Final
Trine Hattestad (NOR) Gold
"My husband being in the stands and my two sons watching it back in the hotel, these two facts inspired me very much.
The new rules? For the time being it will be hard to use both types of javelin.
I am satisfied that with this decision the discussions over the 80 metre world record are finished forever."
-Joanna Stone (AUS) Silver
"Coming after Atlanta, I am absolutely thrilled. I didn't know what I had thrown in the last round but it doesn't matter now, silver, I'm really happy with it."
-Tanja Damaske (GER) Bronze
"First international medal, personal best, what else can I expect? It's wonderful";
