When I was little girl I used to jump around in our living room. That’s why my mum to send me into gymnastics centre. As a teenager, my mum was a gymnast as well.
You are one of the only female gymnasts in history to compete the Def (full-twisting Gienger) release, and the eponymous skill, a full-twisting Maloney called the Seitz, the most difficult transition element on the apparatus. How did you prepare for this one?
I have never been scared about flipping around and trying out new crazy things. That helped me a lot to try out those difficult skills.
