“It is a completely different situation from the sprint, but it is the sort of situation that you need to keep within yourself…when I came to the stadium and saw it was windy I knew I had to stay focused. I had good feelings in the zeroing and it was good that I had some seconds of an advantage when I started, so I could take my time to focus,” said Herrmann.
