KIEV 2017, Synchronised 3m – Women flash quotes

Nadezhda Bazhina, Russia, Gold, 304.80 points:

“We wanted to achieve a gold medal today, and we have worked hard to make this happen. We can be really satisfied with our dives. This is exactly the same programme we will present at the World Championships in Budapest next month. From my point of view this was a well-deserved gold medal today.”

Tina Punzel, Germany, Silver, 284.10 points:

“We are very relieved, a huge stone fell from our hearts. In the end the standings were very tight. We were absolutely nervous since we competed together for the first time in an international championship. We certainly did not show our best performance today, but, after all, we now have a medal.”

Inge Jansen, Netherlands, Bronze, 283.80 points:

“After just three months of diving together, it’s amazing that we could win a medal today. We were very nervous, but it was a really good competition for us, I guess I found a good new partner in Daphne after my former partner Uschi Freitag had retired in January.”
