Girls High Jump final

Gold medalNatalya Mamlina, RUS.

It's a great feeling to have this gold medal. I did not expect to jump 1.89m. I am 16, I live in Moscow and I have been training since the age of 10. I think that Yelena Slesarenko has a great technique and this is why she is my idol and also because she comes from Russia.
