Florian WELLBROCK (GER) – gold
On his performance in the final compared to the semifinal,
“I’m very happy and I felt really, really good in the water.
“In sport, the beauty is that everyone is responsible for himself. I didn’t hide yesterday regarding the time [he was nearly 20 seconds slower in Saturday's semifinal] because the race didn’t turn out how I expected.
“Today I didn’t focus on my times. It was much more a race swum in the head rather than with the arms.”
