Fantine LESAFFRE (FRA) - gold

On what was going through her head during the race:

"There were a lot of things going through my head. I was thinking about my father, my coaches, everything I’ve done this year."

On what finally winning a major title means to her:

"It has been hard for me because I have been part of the team since 2014, have had good seasons but I've not made it in international competitions because I felt the stress. Now I have shown that I can represent France well."
