HUSSONG C (GER)
- Gold 67.90 CR
All season I knew that I am in super shape but I could not put it onto the javelin. I wanted a medal, but now that this medal is a gold one, that is so super! I was afraid that this SB in the qualification had only been an exception. But now I even managed to improve that. Seeing the German javelin throwers excell yesterday evening really inspired and motivated me. Suddenly, you also want to have a celebration and an experience like them. A lot of people said that I was not able to throw far at a major adult competition and in a big stadium but I proved the contrary tonight. Despite all the pressure I was able to execute well. This is my first major international titel and I won it in my home stadium.

Is this just a dream or it is real? Only now, I am starting te realise that I really won a medal. After the last attempts, I felt a lot of positive energy and a huge relief. It is coming in some kind of waves. When I sam my friends supporting me, I felt very emotional.
Comparing to yesterda, I was much more confident and focused. I had this fighting mood. I came here for a medal. I started with the memory that I did not manage it well last year but that I will put all the effort today and I show what is in me. I collected a lot of experienced at the Diamond League and major meetings and it also helped me a lot.

- Bronze 61.59
I feel great. The competition was very intense, but I think I was blessed with some good fortune which helped me winning this medal. Of course, this is also the result of all the hard work I put in every day. This has been a dream of mine for a very long time. My next goal is to be invited to take part in the Diamond League finals, and, also to be at a good performance level at the World Championships next year.
