KIEV 2017, Synchronised Platform – Mixed flash quotes

Matthew Lee, Great Britain, Gold, 308.16 points:

“It was a good competition for us today. We are very happy with the result. My partner Lois Toulson is very pleased now as a double champion here at the Europeans in Kiev. It was nice for us to win.” 

Victor Minibaev, Russia, Silver, 300.30 points:

“I made a few stupid mistakes today. But I am looking forward to every contest here. The organisers are friendly and helpful, we are satisfied with everything. On Sunday I will have my individual competition in the platform, from tomorrow I will fully concentrate on it.”

Maicol Verzotto, Italy, Bronze, 299.58 points:

“It seems that I’m the expert for mixed contests in our team. After winning gold in the 3m, this is the second medal in the mixed competitions. We have entered the event with the aim of coming up with our best possible performance. The quality of the other duos’ dives was mostly high. We knew we had to do a very good job and we did that. There were only a few minor mistakes. We’ve been diving together for three years now and can be satisfied with the result.”
