Karoline Bjerkeli GROVDAL (NOR) - bronze

On settling for the bronze medal:

"I was really aiming for gold today, but I have to be happy with the bronze medal. Of course, right now, I'm a little disappointed with the result, but soon I will get over it, and actually appreciate my medal.

"I could feel my legs were tired from the beginning of the race, and there were two laps to go. I knew it would be tough to get gold, so I fought to finish in a medal position instead."
