Federica Pellegrini, winner of Women’s 200m… by lentv

Gold medal

Federica Pellegrini, Italy, 1:55.93

“I am happy to win the title. Honestly, I’m a little bit surprised how things went today, I had a tough preparation before in a training camp and I didn’t expect this result at all.”

Silver medal

Femke Heemskerk, Netherlands, 1:55.97

“I’m very disappointed about the 0.04sec margin. It’s not the first time that I lose to Federica in a close race. Shortly before the race my suit tore, but stayed positive and cool. It’s not a good feeling now but I take many positives with me to the next chapter.”

Bronze medal

Charlotte Bonnet, France, 1:56.51

“This my first individual European medal. I earned bronze against two great swimmers, so it’s a really fine result for me.”
