During Marat`s speech i was crying and laughing at the same time, lol. Cause he still managed to make such a funny and charastic speech even you could see how hurt he was.
Oh yes, his speech that day. I was basically doing the same thing (crying/laughing), it was really miserable because every emotional investment had been crammed into him winning it, but naturally the most disappointed person about his result would be him himself, and in his speech he was so gracious and made all these jokes, but you could tell that it wasn't what he wanted.
&afterwards in the press conference, because that day was his birthday, the organisers gave him this birthday cake and he said something like: "Well, at least one good thing has happened to me today."
