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."
