Quotes from Athletes

21 May 2014 Natalie Benoit
Coming second was forseeable. I haven't had the chance to do 1000m here and Alla (LYSENKO, UKR) was in a different league. The conditions were good, perfect for me. It's fantastic that there is a big crowd here. It warmed my heart to have the support of the French crowd. It pushes you for the last few metres. You want to push. My parents and uncle are here, they are also rowers.

I started quickly to lead the race early and that definitely went better than yesterday. At the end, I lost a bit of energy. I wanted to save some for tomorrow (for the final). Tomorrow will be difficult because we all know who is going to win. Even if she is ill, I think Lysenko (UKR) will still have enough. The rest of us are fighting for two places on the podium.

I never thought I could get the gold so this is the best I could get. I am super happy. It went ideally. I've done it 100 times in my head and it was exactly as I had hoped. My family was here and I had lots of support.The crowd was huge and helped a lot.
