Flash interviews with the medallists after the men’s 5k race.
Gold medallist, Marc-Antoine Olivier, FRA, 54:31.40
I haven’t realized what I did, I wouldn’t have thought that I could win during the competition. We couldn’t yet analize my race with my coach, it’s a whole new experience. It’s time to settle down.
Silver medallist, Mario Sanzullo, ITA, 54:32.10
It’s my first international medal, so I’m absolutely delighted. It’s a fantastic feeling. It was a very strong and tough race, I tried to do my best. The water was perfect, the atmosphere was fascinating. For the first time in Hungary this is my first international medal, so I love this country.
Bronze medallist, Timothy Shuttleworth, GBR, 54:42.10
I started off very strong and tried to swim easy at the middle. Unfortunately I slowed down for the last part of the course. The water was quite warm, ideal for me. This was my first competition in Hungary, I really enjoyed it, I hope I can come back.
