"This has been very diffciult for me, especially the
qualification round in the heat. I have had only six months training as I have recently
given birth to a child. Therefore I did not expect too much from these championships. The
stadium is fine with a good atmosphere in which to jump. For me the result was good but
I'm surprised that it was good enough for gold. So far I have had three bronze and two
silvers at major championships and so this gold is very special for me".
