DV: POLIAKOVA (RUS) - gold in women's 1m springboard

EDINBURGH - Comments from Mariia POLIAKOVA (RUS) after she won gold in the women's 1m springboard event at the Royal Commonwealth Pool in Edinburgh on Friday.

Mariia POLIAKOVA (RUS) - gold

On winning her first major gold medal:

"It is kind of cool to have a title to carry. It is not about bragging but it's cool. It is not one of the Olympic disciplines. It's not as hard as the 10m (platform) or 3m (springboard) events but it feels pretty good."

On her participation in the women's 3m springboard on Saturday:

"I have another day ahead with the 3m and I am not going to think about this gold medal too much. I have to move on."
