Swimming – Women’s 50m back, flash quotes and clip

Francesca Halsall, winner of Women’s 50m… by lentv


Gold medal

Fran Halsall, Great Britain, 27.57 CR

“The race was very exciting, there were a lot of emotions. For 50m there is no race strategy and to be able to sprint we must stay skinny.”

Silver medal

Mie Oe. Nielsen, Denmark, 27.77

“I hoped to be faster here but 50m is too short for me, compared to the 100m I usually swim. In the next weeks I’m going home to take some exams.”

Bronze medal

Georgia Davies, Great Britain, 27.87

“I’m pleased with these Europeans, my times were OK as it’s nice to swim the 50m back three times under 28sec. This means I can go out faster in the 100m in the future.”
