Alexis COPELLO (AZE) - silver

On competing with an injury:

"I'm very happy with a medal, but to be honest, I had higher hopes for me. It's been a really difficult year, especially because of my injury, so I needed to pace myself and ensure I was fit enought to compete.

"Right now, it is important to spend some time recovering. My health comes first, we will see what happens next."
