Cosmin PASCARI (ROU) - gold

On winning gold:

"I won a European championships medal. I am only 19 years old, so it's awesome. We wanted to win."

On the team's tactics:

"We started in front, we got the speed and stayed in front. The pace was fast so in the last 500m we slowed down."

Sean VEDRINELLE (FRA) - bronze

On taking bronze:

"Our race was very strong. At first the Romanians were moving out in front but we just kept going strong. We hit the 1500m mark and we finished in third place. We are ecstatic."
