Mixed 3m springboard, flash quotes

Flash Quotes – Day 3, 11 May


Gold medal

Great Britain, 321.06

Tom Daley:

“I don’t really know what just happened. Grace and I were put together 10 days ago and we’ve done about five sessions together so I’m over the moon to come away as European champions on a board that I never train. It was great to have the home crowd, our families in the audience. It’s been really fun although I was terrified before starting the competition. It could be a possible event at 2020 in the Olympic Games and Great Britain are really strong at the mixed synchro events.”

Grace Reid:

“Today was a really good day for me and I don’t think I’m going to sleep tonight. There’s a lot to take away from today and hopefully I can continue to build on it this season.”

Silver medal

Italy, 308.70

Maicon Verzotto:

“It was not easy as Tania was really excited after the 1m event, so it took a while to find the right rhythm. But we worked together to reach the required level and I think we did a great job at the end.”


Bronze medal

Russia, 305.28

Nadezhda Bazhina:

“We had only two practices together with Nikita, so it’s a really great result and we even earned more points overall than we got in Kazan at the Worlds last year. It was tough to stay focused in the second final but I was able to stay sharp.”The top of the podium is for the british duo DALEY, REID. Silver Italy, bronze Russia.
