We're crushed. We gave it our best shot and went for broke. That's why we're in third, not second. It wasn't to be. We were keeping ahead of the field and thought we were moving through and it was in the last 500 (metres) that it started to fall apart because we were trying to get our bow in front. We gave it our all. We didn't feel under pressure. We've been the second-best boat all through the season and bronze isn't a true reflection of where we are. A bronze medal's no consolation. We wanted to be in the final so we'd have an opportunity to win gold.
