Alexandra TAVERNIER (FRA) - silver

On her performance:

"I am not satisfied with my performance and my technique. I could have done even better than that. I will go and train even harder. It was my shape and the absolute determination that made this national record possible."

On her tactics:

"My aim was to get out a great throw on the first attempt and it worked. Now I have the stability and consistency, I only need good attempts at competitions."

On her plans for the future:

"I will get some treatment for some slight pains and after that I will have a beer to celebrate my medal.

"Now I think about winning in Doha (2019 world championships) and in Tokyo (2020 Olympics Games)."
