MAVRODIEVA R (BUL)
- Gold 19.12 PB
It is fantastic to win today, on 3 March, the national day of Bulgaria. So this medal is for all the Bulgarians who supported me.
It was about time I got first place. At the moment I can't believe it.
On the close competition today:
I didn't look at the other distances. I just went out and competed.
On progressing from bronze in 2015 to silver in 2017 and gold in 2019:
It was my time to win the title but I have hoped for this title for many years.

- Silver 19.11
Losing by one centimetre is very cruel, I know this. Today it was very hard. I tried but I couldn't do better. I had too much power and less technique. I really didn't want this.
Now the focus is Doha (for the world championships). I will go back training to find more strength.
MÁRTON A (HUN)
- Bronze 19.00 SB
I am happy with a medal. I was injured last year and it was really hard to come back and start again. I did my best and threw my season´s best in this competition. I threw all the attempts over 18m. It is third place, but I am happy.
I have had a lot of competitions this year as I got back to competing, which was important after my injury last year. Now I am just looking forward to the next competition and preparing for the summer season.
