Barcelona 2012 - Flash Interviews - Women's 3000m Steeplechase Final


WinnerDaisy JEPKEMEI, KEN
I prayed to God that the weather would be not too hot. I was very nervous. In the moment I even forgot the name of my coach. (A little bit later she remembered the name.) His name is Wahashon Koech. I am from Nairobi and I am training in St. Patrick. I expected a medal, but I did not know the colour of it. So I am very happy with the Gold. I knew that it would be a tough race against the Ethiopian girl. It was my first international steeplechase for Kenya.

Second - Tejinesh GEBISA, ETH
I am happy to get the Silver.

Third - Stella Jepkosgei RUTTO, KEN
I started too late in the last lap to fight for the Silver. I am happy for Daisy and to obtain this second medal for my country, even if it is only the Bronze medal.
