The time displayed is a bit of a shock to me. I improved last year’s competition record already in the semi-finals. I didn’t know I was ready to run like this. What helped? The faith of my coach, my husband and the fans who came to support me.
I ran yesterday, I became the second in the hundred meters. I start two days in a row, it’s normal, I always run like that. Tomorrow I will also run 100 meters at the Znamensky brothers memorial,” Shakulo told .
