TR: SCHOMBURG (GER) - 'I had to break away. I had to take the risk'

GLASGOW - Comments from Jonas SCHOMBURG (GER) after finishing 10th in the men's triathlon at Strathclyde Country Park on Friday.


On the race:

"I had a good swim. The main body swam to the right but I swam to left. I knew I had a big run (to do), it was heavy on my legs and I tried to get away from Alistair [BROWNLEE, GBR] and LE CORRE [Pierre, FRA]."

On leading during the final bike lap:

"I had to break away. I knew there were fast runners in the pack and I had to try something and take the risk."
