Competition is always very high, much practice and patience is required to be able to win. Jianfeng performed very well, he achieved great results."
Giovanni Tocci (ITA): "This bronze feels like a gold medal for me. I hoped I would do well but I never expected such a great result. The fact that I could do so at the World Championships is even more unbelievable. All results were so close till the end. The most important thing was to concentrate fully throughout the whole competition and focus until the very last second. When I saw my score on the board I didn't believe my eyes, I felt so happy I cannot describe. I will have two more events. I'm going to focus on them right now and celebrate this bronze only when I get home."
