"GLASGOW. Sjukamparen Fredrik Samuelsson missed both the medal and the Swedish record in the indoor CHAMPIONSHIPS."
"And was rock hard against himself."
"– Yes, when I finish here, I feel only the emptiness and the hatred of myself, " he says."
"He had everything in his own hands before the final 1000 metres."
"Both a medal and Henrik Dagårds 24-year-old record of 6 142 points."
"But when the clock stopped at 2:45.99 was the dream shattered."
"– It is just empty so here afterwards. It was too slow the first 400 and it is not possible to take again the rest of the race. We the retail environment has been difficult to feel the speed and when the spaniard (winner Jorge Urena) went up and pulled it out I thought it went pretty fast."
"– But it went to hell slowly.I tried to pull up the tempo, but it is never going to recoup those lost seconds."
"The personal record is not comforting?"
" No, not right now anyway. In a few days maybe. And had someone said that I would be four in this championship, I had taken it all the days of the week. But when it goes so good in the five branches and ends like this. It is hard. And it is only my own fault. It was just as I had something to chase and I could only lose my placement if I fell."
"It was 6 125 points to finish for Fredrik. A paltry seventeen points from Dagårds record and new pers with 107 points."
"But there was no greater comfort."
" No, we the retail environment may not such as this, the chances of especially often. It's not that I can compete in next week again."
"Fredrik has four tiokamper planned this summer, including the world CHAMPIONSHIPS in Doha."
" I may come again then. I have in all cases been substantial. It is still nice."
