“My sole purpose in coming here was to win the gold medal. I had a slightly different approach at the Grand Slam in Dusseldorf where I won the silver medal. My focus there (that I had discussed with my coach) was on simply having as many good fights as possible against good fighters. Perhaps, with hindsight, I could have done even better there. I suppose it will come as no surprise to hear that the final with Loriana KUKA (KOS) was the most difficult contest. I had trained with her before and that was quite difficult to be honest. In the contest it took quite some time to catch her. But I felt confident from the beginning of the contest that I could throw her. I am off to Japan for a twelve day training camp now. Then I’ll compete in Antalya. After that we will stay on for a training camp to concentrate on conditioning and, hopefully have a little time to enjoy some nice weather.”
