World Athletics Championships 2003
Anju Bobby George of India competing in the women's long jump final on August 30, 2003, at the 9th IAAF World Athletics Championships at the Stade de France in Saint-Denis, outside Paris.
"This is the first medal for my country and I am very happy for it, it is like a gift for India," Anju George said later.
"It was a tight competition. I got the rhythm after the first round, but I didn't think I was jumping well. Even with my best jump I had problems on taking off. I didn't realise it was so long."
