Diving – Men’s 1m springboard FLASH QUOTES

Flash Quotes – Day 2, 10 May


Gold medal

Illya Kvasha, Ukraine, 439.70

“It was a good competition for me with a lot of adrenaline. Now I have six titles on the 1m board, that’s fine. My last dive wasn’t that good, I thought at least, but my coach told me I didn’t make any serious mistake.”

Silver medal

Giovanni Tocci, Italy, 414.30

“A medal from me is unbelievable. I think I need 24 hours to let it sink in. After two rounds I managed to lift the level of my performance. I trusted the boards, trusted in myself, my confidence grew and when I saw 9s from the judges later, I also started to believe in getting a medal.”

Bronze medal

Constantin Blaha, Austria, 402.55

“My goal was a medal because that’s what I have missed until now at the Europeans, while I got all other placements. The competition level was really high, I felt a bit of a pressure but I was able to overcome it.”
