“It is a great honour to be here in the stadium, probably one of the best I have ever competed in, together with my great friend Laszlo. It was a very emotional event, before, during and after the race for me. I was pretty nervous before the race. The crowd was unreal and I felt like in a football stadium. I am very thankful and lucky that I touched home first.”

“It was unbelievable and so emotional, with the hard year I had with my family, both my parents fighting cancer. I fought for my family tonight.”
