HERMAN E (BLR)
- Gold 12.67
I wanted this gold so much. When I was in the blocks, I do not know why, but I was only thinking about the gold. No silver, no bronze, just gold... I was just a little bit nervous but I knew I was strong enough to fight for it. It was my race. I had a good start, good execution, great finish. I am totally happy. But it is still a big surprise for me. I already have the world junior title but this title counts more. It is the real big medal.
We already have three bronzes in our team and that motivated me so much today. I have no idea how the celebration with the team will look like but I am looking forward to the one at home. My boyfriend Maxim is here supporting me. He is also a sprinter and we have been together for 5 and a half years. He helped me so much.
DUTKIEWICZ P (GER)
- Silver 12.72
This is something so special.This is the most important season in my life. I know that I will never run in front of a home crowd at international championships again.
I am so happy. This was not an easy race. The wind changed all the time. And when it started to rain right before the final I thought "more drama could not be possible."
The pressure was giant. Especially the pressure I put up myself. I kept telling myself "Seize this opportunity!"
ROLEDER C (GER)
- Bronze 12.77 SB
This is a dream come true. I have been dreaming about a medal for the whole time. This audience is bombastic!
I wanted to get a medal. This was my goal. Last year was a difficult year for me because of injuries. A medal is always great. It is fantastic! The race itself was not good. The wind changed so much, all the time.There is much going on in German hurdle sprint. We came second, third and fourth! Wow! This is bombastic.
The semi-final is harder than the final normally.
I enjoy these championships very much.
