SW: WELLBROCK (GER) - bronze in the 800m freestyle

GLASGOW - Comments from Florian WELLBROCK (GER) after his bronze medal in 7 minutes 45.60 seconds in the men's 800m freestyle - two days after he won gold in the 1500m - at the Tollcross International Swimming Centre on Wednesday.

Florian WELLBROCK (GER) - bronze

On his race:

"It was difficult. I still felt the effects of the last race (1500m). After 600m I realised Mykhalo ROMANCHUK (UKR) (gold) and Gregorio PALTRINIERI (ITA) (silver) were ahead of me. I didn’t know where the others were. I didn’t know what position I was in.

"I am very happy with this bronze medal, above all because it’s a German record (at 800m)."
