HEINLE (GER) - silver
On the backing he received from his home crowd:
"They made me a silver medal winner. They helped me to jump 8.13m twice."
On why he did not take his third jump:
"I did not make my third attempt because I was so done, it was so hot. Coming out strong in the second attempt with 8.13m, I could not plan this. It was not a perfect jump, but for today's conditions it was really a perfect jump."
On his plans to celebrate his medal:
"There are many friends and family in Berlin. Let's see what tonight will bring for us."
