It seemed as though my body changed, I recognized it not. I could have my legs almost not lift, I was just a skater that his feet could just go on sliding. I have been in that last two kilometres of unimaginably lost a lot of time. I saw in the distance the finish line and I saw the chrono running, but I was not able to accelerate.”
