The Spanish jumper Fatima Diame was satisfied after having qualified this Tuesday for the long jump final at the European Championships in Rome (Italy), predicted to have a medal we need jump over 6.90 meters and he said he saw a good time to do it.

“To get a medal you have to jump 6.90. The Germans have always jumped with a platform and they have seen that they are good at it. Mihambo jumped seven meters very easily and I saw Larissa (Iapichino, the Italian) very good. I think it’s going to be a very interesting final and I’m ready to jump the 6.90″, Diame said in statements provided by the Valencian Federation.

The Valencian athlete faces this event after being third in the short track World Cup in Glasgow (Scotland) with a mark of 6.78 meters. “I was better than in Glasgow. That medal gave me a lot of confidence and also having Ivan, he always knew what to say to me.” He explained in reference to Ivan Pedroso, his coach.

In classification, He clocked 6.50 on his first jump, 6.28 on the second and earned a pass by closing with a 6.70. “I became calm with a classification. Too calm, I’d say. “I didn’t show any signs of nervousness.”he assured.

“I feel good, although two days ago I had a small accident while lifting weights and my back is a bit bad and it has been difficult for me. Now I have solved these situations and it is thanks to Ivan. He knows what he should do tell me and him “I solve it, it didn’t work before. So I’m calmer,” said the Valencian.

Diame explained that he had to change your approach to the first race supports because the hallway is a floating platform. “The track controlled me more than I controlled it. Because of the way I ran, I had to change my approach a little in the first steps and go faster. “That’s the cost.”he highlighted.
