Ukrainian athlete Maryna Bekh has shared his impressions of the “silver” of the championship-2018 in the long jump. She told the official website of the athletics Federation of Ukraine.
“The fight I pushed the last failure, always something did not happen. But this year, we are very differently approached, and I was working on psychology.
I have a wonderful support – my favorite Michael Romanchuk, coach Vadim Krushinsky and parents. When I reached the final, Michael said that he would come to me, and he has three medals, FOUR in swimming, so I couldn’t disappoint myself, the coach and native person.
Inspired that failed in the fifth attempt to move the Jasmine Sawyers. She has always succeeded in recent attempts. When she passed me in the sixth attempt with the same result (6.67 m), I realized that now we need to play better. I’m very glad that I succeeded in the last attempt, and I jumped 6.73 meters,” – said Maryna Bekh.
This is the first medal of Maryna Bekh at the international tournaments. At last year’s world Cup it wouldn’t qualify, and at the 2016 Olympics in Rio was the 12th.
We will remind, the European championship-2018 in athletics in Berlin, Ukraine received seven awards – two gold, three silver and two bronze.
