SOCHI, February 12 (Itar-Tass) - Germany’s woman ski jumper Carina Vogt, who has won the first-ever Olympic gold medal in the history of this event, is beside herself with joy and also with curiosity how she managed to put emotion under control seconds before the decisive jump.
Vogt triumphed in Sochi late Tuesday evening leaving behind Austria’s Daniela Iraschko and France’s Colin Mattel.
“Before making the second jump I had no thoughts at all. I was just trying to stay calm. I knew I had to show the best result, if I was to win the gold, that’s it. I managed, but I still feel amazed I really made it. That’s just fantastic,” Vogt said.
The German athlete shared her impressions of the result shown by the main favourite of the competition, Sara Takanashi, who fell short of an Olympic award.
“I feel very sad she has not been rewarded for her past achievements. Sara did so much for the sake of giving us all a chance to perform here, at the Olympic Games. I am really very sorry she failed to win a medal,” Vogt said.
