European Athletics Championships

Here are some pictures from my 20km event in Gothenburg. I became Fourth!!! I am really happy. I gave my best to make a medal, but three athletes were better. If somebody would have told me a year ago that I would become fourth at the Europeans I would have laughed. The season hasn't been perfect because of the injury earlier this year, and in Gothenburg I only walked my third real race since October 2004. My time of 1.28.45 is the best time I have ever walked in a Championship. And with this I am more than pleased and do not feel sorry that I missed the bronze medal with eight seconds and the silver medal with ten seconds. I walked the last 10k in 43.43 and the last 1k in 4.16!!! But I could not close the gap. Both girls in front of me also walked a very good race.
