"It is great that the 50km is at the world championships despite the fact that it is a really hard event. The last 5kms were really tough. My goal was to go under 4 hours and 6 minutes, so I am really happy with this time.
It felt like at home in London with so many Portuguese fans supporting me. I hope that in future we will see more women competing at this distance"
"Today was important because I am just 20. It is my first international competition and it was a great experience. I am excited for silver but next time, I want to get the gold. It was a really hard surface, so I felt pain in my knees and hamstrings"
"Silver and bronze is great for the team. The final half of the race was really hard. So the crowd helped a lot. They gave me the power to finish the race"
