Giovanni TOCCI (ITA) - silver
On his strategy after falling behind in earlier rounds:
"I had no strategy. Actually, I didn't see any dives from any diver and only at the end did I figure out where I was in the final rank. I prefer not to see anything."
On hurting his right elbow in Monday's mixed team event:
"Today was better because of the physiotherapy and now I have to do my 3m and then on Friday I have to do my 3m synchro with Andrea CHIARABINI, so I hope my elbow is getting better.
"I did the high board 10m and I didn't react on the impact. It's nothing bad."
On struggling in Monday's training ahead of Tuesday's competition:
"I couldn't dive because of my elbow and that's the reason why I prefer to do more simple dives than difficult dives, just to feel the rhythm with the springboard and everything. It was a good strategy."
On his final two dives that put him on to the podium:
"The last two dives are my favourite that's why I put them on the end."
