Maksim NEDASEKAU (BEL) - silver
On finishing the competition with the silver medal:
"All the opponents were very strong and it was an open competition. I knew I needed to attack the new personal best and I was ready to do it. But still, silver is great and I am very happy as it is my second big medal after the European junior championships in Grossetto.
On the backing he received from friends and family:
"The medal belongs to all my friends who supported me at home in Minsk and could not afford to come to Berlin, like my parents. Now, finally, I have the time for a short rest and then then the next four competitions to earn some more money."
