I feel very glad because this is the first gold medal of this Olympic Games for Thailand. I expected and hoped for a gold medal. I am very proud to have it.
2012 was tough for me but I never gave up. So many things happened since Beijing 2008. I want to dedicate this medal to my soon to be born baby.
I am very happy and very excited as we have been wanting for this gold medal. I want to dedicate it to my family, my coach and everyone who supports me.
I am full of emotions after 22 years of lifting weights. It is true that I have been lifting all of the weight of Colombia, all of my country is happy.
I am very happy. I never thought I could do it. This is my first time at the Olympics, so I am very happy to win a gold medal and bring it back to Thailand.
I am very happy, I achieved my goal. I achieved my team's goal. Our team worked hard for three years. We all went through a lot to get to this point.
At first, I was very nervous, because it was my first Olympic Games, but afterwards I won, so I am just super excited. I am very satisfied with my performance. I have been targeting a gold medal for a long time, so I am very happy with this.
Every (lead-in) competition is a great experience for the athletes to train their minds and their bodies and get ready for the international competition environment. I think it (the Olympics) is a good environment and I like it a lot.
I wasn't thinking I was going to win. Sometimes the weights change and sometimes the bodies change. If I have more time in the future I will set more Olympic records and more world records.
There was no stress. I just tried really hard. I was really overwhelmed with happiness that I won this gold medal so I can send this honour to my Leader.
I trained for two years at my own home. People always asked me why I was training and I knew why I was training. I had a goal.
I think this is my duty for my country and my party and once I received this duty I pursued it.
I wanted much more. I wanted 243kg because I am lifting 240kg in training.
