DV: KURJO, WASSEN (GER) - bronze in women's synchronised 10m platform

Maria KURJO (GER) - bronze

On the competition:

"Our third dive was great but we could have done a bit better with the entry to our fifth dive. The British [gold medallists Eden CHENG and Lois TOULSON] finished with a great dive too and I am not really surprised they managed to win it."

On the pair's preparations for the event: 

"We had a few problems because Elena (WASSEN) was travelling quite a lot with junior events and the pool in Berlin was shut for a bit. So we didn't get to train as much together as we would have wanted. But we knew we have a good chance of a medal."

Elena WASSEN (GER) - bronze

On winning her first European medal at senior level:

"I am very happy with this first European medal. It has been a long season with many competitions and it is just brilliant to get a medal from it all."
