PELETEIRO A (ESP)
- Gold 14.73 EL
It´s so special. I am so happy. It´s my first (European) gold medal and it comes after I suffered from a little tendon injury. I haven´t jumped for a month. I trained a lot to do well.
After two foul jumps, my coach said: 'Just do it.' And then I knew I could do it. It was difficult especially in my head. I told myself: ´Just enjoy it.´
Jumping the national record is a result of my full dedication and passion. It means everything to me.
On her nickname `Kangaroo Girl´:
My family gave me this nickname in 2012. I like kangaroos and I jump like them.
PAPAHRÍSTOU P (GRE)
- Silver 14.50 PB
I feel amazing. I love it all. Right now I touch the sky.
I have an injury on my left hamstring. I wasn't sure I could compete here. I knew I couldn't make many jumps. I wanted to put it all out there on the first one, and it worked.
It just shows, making it onto the podium is not just a matter of training, it's a matter of heart.
SALADUKHA O (UKR)
- Bronze 14.47 SB
On jumping 14.47 three times:
Why, why, why!? I am not sure why that was, it is not usual. I was jumping close to the edge - maybe if I had jumped straighter, who knows?
On winning her first medal since 2014:
It is good to be back after so long. I have had problems with my back and the doctors stopped me training for a very long time. But thanks to the doctor and physios, today has been a good day for me.
I was happy even to be here today because of my back. I hope I do not have any problems with it after today because I will be starting to prepare for the Olympics. It is too early to know.
