Diving Team Event – flash quotes

Flash Quotes – Diving – Team Event

Gold medal – Russia, 413.30

Nadezhda Bazina

“I got an injury last year but I managed to recover from it and now I feel really good. Today somewhat expected this win and it’s awesome to earn it.”

Viktor Minibaev

“It’s good to have a competition in good shape at last. Back in the World Cup in Brazil our team didn’t perform that well though we were out form there. Now it’s much better and we could show our strength right at the start and we expect to earn more titles in the coming days.”

Silver medal – Ukraine, 396.40

Iulia Prokopchuk

“We would have liked to win this event but the silver is also fine. Before my second dive I was a little but nervous and had a few problems while performing it.”

Bronze medal – Great Britain, 353.85

Georgia Ward

“That was incredible. It’s fantastic to come away with a medal. This event is incredible. It’s at my home pool as well and we won a medal here for Synchro at the World Series last year. So coming away from here with a European medal in the Team Event this year is great. I’ve got three events this week. We’re doing the mixed synchro as well on Saturday so we’ll be back training for that tomorrow and the individual on Friday should be good. It’s incredible diving here at my home pool in London – it makes you feel more comfortable going into the competition but also having the crowd support you is so lovely.”

Matty Lee:

“It’s a really good start to the competition. I’ve never been in a Team Event before and it’s really good to get things kicked off and blow the cobwebs away for the other competitions later in the week. I’m not a springboard diver – I specialise in 10m so it was weird for me to compete on the 3m springboard! I only started training my 3m dives during this week I’ve been here. But it went alright obviously so I’m really happy obviously.”
