Quotes from Athletes

21 May 2014 Francesco Fossi
It went exactly according to plan. At the 1000 metres we were still at the back but we felt we could go and get a medal. It’s been a different season with a different coach, but it totally worked out and we’re really happy with the result.

We stuck to our race plan, but overall, during the race we felt that we lost power. But we were still in the group within the first 1000m so in the last 500m we played our joker – the sprint. We are very happy with our result. This was certainly also thanks to our new coach.

We are still experiencing some problems with fitness and are trying to find our best performance but we are happy. We are growing with every race. Croatia and Germany are strong competition but if we can find ourselves in good condition we can race everyone as long as we trust in ourselves. This is only our second regatta together. It's a very new crew. We have only been racing together for about a month,.
