Gold medalist, Aurélie Muller, FRA, 2:00:13.70
I haven’t planned that I will be at the first place through. I started very well and after that I decided that I will do it to the end. I may not look tired and I even do not feel tired at all, because as a winner you can not feel anything like that. I am happy for the result and I am satisfied that I finished almost in 2 hour.
Silver medalist, Samantha Arevalo, ECU, 2:00:17.00
I am really happy. Thanks to God for the result. I have never tought about being at the second place at my second senior World Championship. I have worked for this succes really hard.
Bronze medalist, Arianna Bridi, ITA, 2:00:17.20
I am delighted with my results and I am really happy because of it, but I feel too tired after the race to realize my success. I trained usually with Rachele Bruni,and I learnt a lot from her about the open water swimming and I could swim in tha same pack throuh the race.
Bronze medalist, Ana Marcela Cunha, BRA, 2:00:17.20
I was not nervous about the uncertainity of my position. I am really satisfied and happy because after the Olympics I struggled with a serious injury, thats why my preparation for this event was really hard. The race was very strong, I tried to do my best. I have been here before, 3 years ago and I like to swim in The Lake Balaton. The organisation and the atmosphere were fantastic. I enjoyed racing.
