A day before the grand athletics meeting,  the Press Conference continued by the host, Mr. Márton Gyulai,  General Secretary of the Hungarian Athletics Federation (MASZ) at the Federation Center.


One of the two “Queens” in the field of sprinters.

Sanya Richards-Ross – United States of America  

“My main goal is to run as fast as I can and to entertain those that are watching   the game. When I’m running  ain’t giving any thoughts of who is ahead nor beside me,  just doing my best. Of course, I always know who will be also on the field, but what really counts is the time and to win. This is my first time here in  Budapest and hope to be able to see some parts before leaving.” She admitted, next time she will be coming along to another athletics meeting here at Budapest she will bring  her father, who was a great fan of Puskás.  Her father already envied her for  running in that Stadium named after Puskás.


Oscar Pistorius – South Africa

Pistorius is known as “the fastest man on no legs.”  He doesn’t feel different from those walking folks with their two legs.  He said: “When I get up in the morning, I buckle on my legs. My brother slips into his shoes and off we  go. Simple as that!” Ending  the interview, he quoted what  he often says: “They say in athletics you can be fit, but you also need to be competition fit.”  He also added: “Often individuals think and say the Olympic and Paralympic games are two different games. Many misunderstand the meaning of the word. So let me put it this way, paralympic word stand for parallel and not paralyzed.

Members of the Hungarian Paralympics  Association also joined the press conference and handed over a small  gift,  an album of photos of the  Hungarian Paralympics medal winners.

National Athletics Olympic champions

Zoltán Kővágó  – discus throw

Zoltán Kővágó  – discus throw

Kisztián Pars – hammer throw

Róbert Fazekas – discus throw

Daniel Kiss – hurdles

As they all  said, injuries were around them, but hopefully it won’t disturb their  results and in winning  tomorrow.



Krisztián Pars, was talking about his finger injury. Showing  the "new finger style" that had to  "invent"  to be able to hold/throw  the discus of tomorrow.

Krisztián Pars – Hungary

Was showing, talking about his previous finger injury.

Showing  his “new finger style” that he  had to  “invent” . He showed the press which finger will do  the job – to be able to hold/throw  the discus of tomorrow.  He hopes he will succeed.


The other “Queen” of  sprinter

Veronica Campbell-Brown – Jamaica

Seemed to be excited  and looking forward to her run of tomorrow.  She would have loved to go for that 400m, but this time  it hasn’t been brought into the schedule, therefore she will be in the 200m sprint. She reckons that  it’s going to be a great battle between Sanya Richards-Ross and her, here at  Budapest. This game will be her last one  before  attending to the IAAF World Championships at Daegu Stadion/Korea.  With a  lovely smile on her face  she spoke about her  love for the 400m run, although it hasn’t been adopted  in this program, she will be in the 200m sprint.  She also mentioned, she often runs 200m, but now-a-days it is a kind of field outwork for her.
