Istanbul 2012 - Flash Interviews - Men's High Jump Final


Winner - Dimitrios CHONDROKOUKIS, GRE

I am very happy and very lucky. This is my first medal in an international competition! I did not expect to win at all and beat all these Olympic and World champions! If I am surprised? Of course! It was a very hard competition and I am grateful about my new PB. The crowd was so warm, a lot of guys who came here from Greece. They were really cheering me up!


Second - Andrey SILNOV, RUS

I am not satisfied with the silver. I planned to jump higher, but had some technical difficulties at 2.35m. This is my first major championships after the Olympics so it is still a very positive result.
