Non Stanford has just been speaking to the BBC's Jonathan Edwards:


At the next at the minute. Obviously and gutted that they did a medal. We


came here as a team to get a medal and we have walked away with one. It


was a tough day and it was really hard. I suffered from the start of


the end. But I gave everything and I don't figure could have asked much


more of myself. Maybe I didn't play my tactics quite right. It is still


forth in the Olympic Games. You can be really proud of that. We can put


it on display. A question to both of you, what was going through your


mind as you were coming up to that lap 20 would be a sprint between two


best friends from that medal? I just kept thinking that it would be one


of us. I knew we had managed to drop Barbra behind us. I kept thinking,

that we are housemates. That's not how you grace. We've always said


that it is fair game and I just had to approach it like that. Your


thoughts? Absolutely. I was and is confident about dropping Barbra


because she's really strong. That's where I kept pushing. I was to keep


the place tidy make sure we didn't lose out on medals completely. Vicky


did a bit better than me. What can I say? I just added at the end and


delighted to have bronze. And just a bit gutted. I think the first thing


I said was, I'm so sorry! Of course she was absolutely brilliant about


it and congratulated me. I just said, I wish it could have been


asked to together. What can you do? When was incredible. A lot stronger


on the bike and I think a lot of us thought she would be. Nicola was


just surging forward on the bike all the time. She really came out to try


to win a title back and was strong enough to hold on the silver.
