“Now we have to learn to live with these consequences. We had the chance but now we have to show up and take the chances. The match doesn’t have an explanation after winning the first two sets and losing the next three. With all the problems we’ve overcome, it’s okay to win a silver medal. We’re obviously angry and very disappointed, especially starting out so good and then losing it.” –Bruno Rezende (BRA)
OG M: Santos and Rezende for the press
“It’s unexplainable. We knew it was going to be difficult, we can’t believe it. Losing is part of it but the way we did is even harder to accept. We are going to have Olympic heroes in Rio (de Janeiro, Brazil),” Sergio Santos (BRA) stated after the Gold match.
