Chen Aisen / Yang Hao (CHN): “We are glad to win with this new formation. We won all four events in the FINA Diving World Series this season, we hoped to make consistent performance at the World Championships also. There were really good pairs, so we should be delighted with this result.”
Aleksandr Bondar / Viktor Minibaev (RUS): “ We have been working together for half a year, so it is a great result for us. I think there is a big potential in our team, so the future will be even better."
Patrick Hausding / Sascha Klein: “I wanted to obtain a medal in any case, since I managed to do so I couldn’t be any happier now.
