Euro Athletics Junior Champs Flash Quote - Men's Discus

21st July 2013

Nick Percy – European Junior Discus Silver Medallist – 62.04m

I was just so happy when I knew the silver was safe – I was literally in tears. Going into the last throw knowing the silver was in the bag, I didn’t really care that it was my worst throw!

I’m just so overjoyed. I didn’t expect a silver, maximum a bronze on a good day, but never a silver.

The competition was tough. There was a lot of big throws and PB’s today, and maybe I’m a little upset that I didn’t get a PB myself? 62.04m, just under my PB, my third best throw of the season – I can’t really complain!

I’ve been working my buttocks off, travelling a couple of hundred miles for training each week to try and peak for this competition and do as well as I could, and it paid off today. I’m just so glad that all the effort and time I’ve put into it has all been worth it.
