Barcelona 2012 - Flash Interviews - Men's Hammer Throw Final
WinnerAshraf Amgad ELSEIFY, QAT It is a great feeling to break the World Record. I always believed that I am able to do that. It was hard but I am very very happy that I got it. To wear the uniform of the Qatar and represent my country to the world is great. I will be going to World Championships in Moscow next year. Second - Bence PASZTOR, HUN My dream came true. I wanted to achieve the podium. Silver is amazing, the Qatari guy is unbeatable for us. I am living in Veszprem and hope to continue the great tradition of Hungarian Hammer throwers. Third - Suhrob KHODJAEV, UZB I hoped at least for the second place. At the moment it's hard to say what I feel. I have been practicing hammer throw since 2007 in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, and my coach is a world champion Andrey Abduvaliyev. This Championships is a passing step for me, I have passed the olympic minimum and I am going to proudly represent my country in London this year.
