Flash Interview Men Discus Throw Final


Lars Riedel (GER) Gold "I would like to thank Jurgen for his first long one (66.14). It shocked the opponents and it was much easier for me to follow him. After the 68+ throw I was sure it was over, and the fourth title was mine." -Virgilijus Alekna (LIT) Silver "I am the best in the world, but of course, after Lars Riedel. So what? It was quite clear that we were all competing just for the second and third places." -Jurgen Schult (GER) Bronze "The small china pig I was given by my wife helped a lot! No, that's just a joke! To be serious, third at 37 years is not bad."
