Aleksandr BONDAR (RUS) - gold

On winning the gold medal:

"I am extremely happy. I am pleased everything went quite well. I have not competed at the European championships in the past four years so this really nice."

On his performance:

"I would not say that it was without any errors. I went through my programme quite well, but it could have been better. You can always do better and there is room to grow."

On his third dive, which scored over 100 points:

"I think not only the third dive should have been good, but the whole programme should receive 9.0 to 9.5 points in order to win the Olympics."
