“I just realise I won the gold. In this moment I get smashed by a mix of feelings. A bit of surprise because I had some struggles in the beginning of my race and thought I had to perform a perfect technical race this day.
A big relief of finally be able to win a medal at the only distance I was missing one - the WOC Middle. And finally, tons of sheer happiness and joy of the moment.”
