Susanne Kreher, GER 1

"We couldn't practice the reaction start so much before, so I was a bit nervous. That I had such a good reaction time was maybe also a bit of luck. Watching Christopher do his run was already very exciting for me."

Brogan Crowley, GBR 2

"It's a team race, which is great fun, but also means more pressure because you have a team partner. I was quite nervous before the new reaction start. But it makes the race even more interesting with an extra level of excitement."

Matt Weston / Laura Deas, GBR 1

"My run was not good today, Laura saved the medal for us."

"I needed a lot of focus at the start and really had tob e at the zine to not make mistakes. But it was fun and I think it looks really good for the spectators."
