Quotes from Athletes

We are very happy with the result. It was the best result of the season. The Kiwi pair are two exceptional rowers and they work really hard in New Zealand. Our aim is to get as close (to them) as possible.

The weather conditions were excellent which enabled us to row technically well. Our plan was just to take a place in the final. In the final we’ll try to stay with New Zealand for a longer period of the race and see what happens.

We took a break after the Olympics and started the World Cup preparations in February. Before that I took holidays to spend time with my friends and family. This afternoon we are going to longboardsurfing in Bondi.

We usually start a race quite fast. In the semifinal we were a little slower, but here we wanted to really go for it. In the last 500m it is so loud, like an arena. We couldn't hear each other but we just focused on making the difference between bronze and silver.

Experience helps. I am not sure if it is just down to the last four years of experience but it helps. The fact that we already have a medal from four years ago makes us want to win another. It's small things that make that we get better.
