TR: LINDEMANN (GER) - fourth in the women's triathlon

GLASGOW - Comments from Laura LINDEMANN (GER) after finishing fourth in the women's triathlon at Strathclyde Country Park on Thursday.

Laura LINDEMANN (GER) - fourth

On being involved in a crash on the bike stage:

"The Spanish girl [Sara PEREZ SALA] went against a cone and I was behind the girls who crashed into her. Before that, I thought a medal was reachable, but at that point I realised I had to get into a new mode of thinking."

On rejoining the chasing group:

"I tried to push hard on the bike to chase the group, and I was back again. I tried to run as fast as possible, and on the third lap I found new energy to get to fourth place."
