 A: Você acaba de ganhar a medalha de prata no salto com vara. Como você se sente?
You just won the silver medal in pole vaulting. How do you feel?
  B: Olha, é muito gratificante, viu? Depois de tantos treinos e tanto esforço, essa sensação não tem igual.
Wow, it’s very satisfying, you know? After so many years of training and so much effort, there is nothing like this feeling.
  A: Mas você não está desapontada que não ganhou a medalha de ouro?
But aren’t you disappointed that you didn’t earn a goal medal?
  B: Desapontada? Quando tem milhares de atletas que não tem a oportunidade de representar o país deles, não, pra mim é uma honra.
Disappointed? When there are thousands of athletes that don’t have the chance to represent their country, no, for me it’s an honor.
  A: Por favor, fala um pouco sobre aquela última tentativa.
And tell as a little about your last attempt.
  B: Pois é, falhei nas primeiras duas, mas na terceira, peguei uma boa velocidade, decolei bem, e passei por cima da barra.
Yeah, I missed on the first two, but the third one, I had good speed, took off well, and cleared the bar.
