BEKMEZ M (TUR)
- Bronze 48:33.88 NU20R
I was really tired after the silver medal won last week in Nairobi at the World U18 Championships and I could have done a better result and get a better medal otherwise. I've got twoo penalties in the first two kilimeters so during the race I was a bit stressed focusing on the technique. I would like to thank the president of the Turkish federation, the race walking coordinator and my coach Cetin Ascan for all the support. Now I'm going to take some rest from the competitions.
