Ludmila Engquist (SWE) Gold
"If the first start had been OK, I think the winning time would have been around 12.45sec.
After the 8th hurdle I knew that I would win.
The world record is for next year. I Think that I have two or three good years in front of me."
-Svetla Dimitrova (BUL) Silver
"Too slow reaction time.
So next year in the European Championships I will try to be first."
-Michelle Freeman (JAM) Bronze
"I was concentrating on myself and just getting to the line, but I made some errors in my race and they caught me."
