Olympic bronze tells me `don`t quit`: IsinbaevaLondon: Russia`s pole vault queen Yelena Isinbaeva said Monday the bronze she won at the London Games was a sign she must shelve her plans to retire.

Isinbaeva, a double Olympic champion and 28-time world record setter, came off a subpar season and sixth place at the 2011 world championships to clinch third place in Monday`s Olympic final, which was won by America`s Jenn Suhr.

"I think this bronze tells me `Elena, don`t quit`, as I planned to quit after London," the 30-year-old superstar said.

Isinbaeva could be persuaded to continue because the next world athletics championships are on home soil in Moscow.

"I don`t know about Moscow. Of course I will be there anyway. I`d like some rest but for now I don`t know anything. I am just glad the Olympics are finished as it was so stressful."

As for the bronze, which she took with a best effort of 4.75 metres, far below her world record of 5.06, Isinbaeva said: "It is like a gold medal for me."

"It has been a lot of things in the past which have been disappointing for three years."
