GLASGOW - Comments from silver medallist Olena BURYAK (UKR) and bronze medallist Sophie SOUWER (NED) after the final of the women's quadruple sculls at Strathclyde Country Park on Saturday.

Olena BURYAK (UKR) - silver

On the race:

"We started slowly but then in the middle of the distance, we found power. When we realised we finished in second, we were very happy."

Sophie SOUWER (NED) - bronze

On taking bronze:

"Bronze was a reasonable goal. We needed to have the perfect race to win it [the race]."

On the race:

"It was exciting. It was a very brave race. We had a good position in the 1000m but the water was getting very difficult and it was hard to keep up the speed. Ukraine just slipped away."
