CAN Y (TUR)
- Winner 26:47.80
It was not easy race as it is very windy and cold here. The wind was pushing me back. However, I like to keep in my own rythm - to slow down and speed up whenever I want, so I did not mind I had to to run on my own. I kept pushing till the end and I enjoyed my run very much. Tomorrow I will have my 21st birthday so I am happy I gave myself this gold medal present.

- Second 27:02.62
This is my second great medal from a senior carreer, in 2015 ECH Crosscountry I was 3rd and now I have a silver medal so I am very very happy. I felt very strong today, even it was so cold and windy at the course. I still had a power to run faster last meters of the race and I won the sprint against the Norweigan runner,Karoline Grovdal. It was a nice race, I really enjoyed it.
GRØVDAL KB (NOR)
- Bronze 27:03.13
The beginning was quite fast for me but I tried to keep up with the rest and went front with Meraf Bahta. However, last lap I got very tired and it was difficult for me to speed up at the end of the competition. I was not better than Meraf Batha today but that is ok. I was aminig for medal, so I am satisfied. I already have a collection of 3 medals in the row and that is great. Now I am going to celebrate Christmas and then continue with the training sessions.
