Fabienne SCHLUMPF (SUI) - silver

On the race:

"It was a tough race, fast from the beginning.

"I wanted to run in front because I wanted to run my own race and have my own technique over the hurdles.

"I ran as fast I I could until the finish line but (gold medallist) Gesa (Gesa-Felicitas KRAUSE, GER) was faster than me. It was so much fun competing here. This is my first international medal. I am so pleased. There are so many Swiss fans, it is amazing. I enjoyed running here."
