QUOTE OF THE DAY
“I dreamed about the gold medal at World Championships all my life and now I have this medal. It was a good race, not so fast, and I was ready from the beginning to the finish. I knew all girls can finish strong, so I decided to start it on the last 200m. I felt really good and recovered from the semi-final. After the semi-final, I knew I can win if I do everything right. I have prepared all year for the World Championships, I believed in myself and dreamed about it. I think from tomorrow on I will start preparing for the Olympic Games in Rio. ” Marina Arzamasava after winning the 800 m.
