Istanbul 2012 - Flash Interviews - Women's Long Jump Final


Winner - Brittney REESE, USA

I am blessed to become the first woman to win back-to-back indoor titles, plus the American and the Championships record. Istanbul will be a special place in my career and will now go for the Olympic gold, the only major title missing in my career. That quote (See it, Feel it Trust it), I had it in the back of my mind and knew I could jump far today.

Second - Janay DELOACH, USA

I gave 100%, I gave the best that I can. There was nothing more to do. I gave it all and here I am with a silver medal. I am so grateful. I am really excited about it. This is amazing, I could just scream! My jumps were ok. Only the last one felt really good: I had it . Now I will take a little bit of a break and then I need to work on a few things. I guess the prize money is the biggest money I ever got. This will help me for the whole year.

Third - Shara PROCTOR, GBR

That was very intense. But it had all what it takes to make a good competition. I had two fouls in the beginning. So I went back, tried to stay relax. And then jumped 6.86 and after that got more confidence. When Brittney landed at 7.23m, I was just happy for her, but I had to try to stay focus. I came here to jump far. That's what I've been doing. I'm doing my job.
