Joachim EILERS (GER) - bronze

On his team's race:

"I'm satisfied because this is the first race for [Tokyo 2020] Olympic qualification. We are a young team, this is our first time together, so it was OK to get a bronze."

On taking bronze this year despite claiming silver in this event last year:

"Last year we had the European Championships at home and it was a close finish with France. Here we won the bronze as a new team and we think we can improve ourselves for next time."

On his aim for next year's championships:

"Gold, easy."
