“He asked me to try and I did. So now I´m here. I´m so happy, I can´t say anything, this is so amazing that I really can´t understand this. This is something new for me and I must think a little bit what I have managed to do”, told the amazed Igityan at the mixed zone.

“My heart was pumping when I entered the finals arena. I was here yesterday, and I could feel the size when I was watching the arena, but today it was something else. I heard the results but I didn´t let it disturb me. I tried to enjoy. My motto is that I´ll try to learn always something new. This was a marvellous possibility to enjoy the feeling of a big competition and at so fine arena”, told the winner Ivana Basic.
