Women's 1500m Final

Gold MedallistMASTERKOVA, Svetlana (RUS)
"I did not fear anyone. I was only thinking of my head and my legs because I have problems and I want to go under an operation after these Championships, and recover afterwards. I was not happy with my performance in the 800 metres and wanted to win the 1500 metres for myself, my family in Russia and my Spanish friends, who were a bit sad about my previous performance. When I am in good shape, I think nobody can beat me".
Medalla de oro - MASTERKOVA, Svetlana (RUS)
"No temia a nadie. Solo pensaba en mi cabeza y en mis piernas porque tengo problemas y quiero operarme despues de la competicion, para recuperarme despues. No estaba contenta con mi actuacion en los 800 metros y queria ganar los 1.500 para mi, para mi familia en Rusia y mis amigos espanoles que estaban un poco tristes por mi actuacion anterior. Cuando estoy en plena forma, creo que nadie puede derrotarme".
Silver Medallist - JACOBS, Regina (USA)
"Second again! It was a pretty quick sprint and Masterkova opened up on me very quickly and I must admit in my heart of hearts I didn't believe I would catch her this time."
Medalla de plata - JACOBS, Regina (USA)
"Otra vez segunda! Fue un sprint bastante rapido y Masterkova se abrio por mi lado muy rapidamente. En lo mas profundo de mi debo admitir que no creia que pudiera cogerla esta vez."
Bronze Medallist - DULECHA, Kutre (ETH)
"The last lap was very fast for me. I was lucky to keep the Romanian behind me. I didn't have any tactics, I just tried to follow the others and have a kick in the end. The medal is very good for me."
Medalla de bronce - DULECHA, Kutre (ETH)
"La ultima vuelta fue muy rapida para mi. Tuve suerte de mantener a la rumana detras. No tenia ninguna tactica, solo trate de seguir a las otras y pegar un tiron al final. Esta medalla es muy buena para mi".
