US-Marathonstar Deena Drossin: „I felt like a rock star”


Deena Drossin, who ran to a sensational bronze medal in the Olympic Marathon, explained what happened after her triumph during a press conference in Athens. “I went to a small village with my family – I have no idea where I was, sorry I can not tell you. We went to a very nice restaurant to celebrate my medal and had a great Greek dinner. When I entered the restaurant I got standing ovations”, Deena Drossin recalled. She had won the first US marathon medal in the Olympics since Joan Benoit’s golden triumph in 1984.

“I felt like a rock star, photographers were arriving. Obviously everyone had watched the marathon on TV and they all knew who I was”, Deena Drossin, who had broken Joan Benoit’s US record in last year’s London Marathon with a time of 2:21:16, said. “The owner of the restaurant congratulated me and put a couple of bottles of wine on our table.”
