PEDRO PICHARDO (winner of the triple jump final): "It was a good event. The big goal was to secure the victory. I won the gold medal. After the first attempt, I tried to stay focused, because I could be overtaken, I knew I was going to have a great battle with Alexis Copello and Max Hess, the two athletes who finished on the other podium places. On the fifth attempt, I realized that I was not going to lose the gold medal, I saw that my competitors were already tired, they could no longer do the jumps with the same quality. At that moment I was calmer."
