If pole vaulter Fabiana Murer thought winning a silver medal at world championships was cool, imagine what will happen if she wins a gold at the Olympics.

Murer is from Brazil, and the Olympics are in Rio de Janeiro next August.

After receiving her silver medal Thursday evening, she spent about a half-hour hanging around the Bird’s Nest taking pictures and sharing hugs with coaches and others from the Brazilian team.

The 34-year-old Murer, who will retire after the Olympics, said she’s enjoying this and is already thinking about what will be her last, and biggest, meet.

“It’ll be an amazing competition — to compete for my country, and have my home crowd cheer for me,” Murer said. “I think it helps you, and can help the Brazilians win more medals.”
