This is what Ricardo Rego (POR) had to say:
Rego: " I am not satisfied with my fencing today, but i did much better in swimming. There were waves in the pool, that made it a little bit harder. Now i have to make up in other disciplines, i feel confident in riding."
22 year old Bence Demeter (HUN) placed fifth in the pool with a time of 2:02.50
Demeter: "I was satisfied with my fencing, i reached 880 points. Swimming time is a little bit different from what i expected, but i will recover in other disciplines."
