COLINE DEVILLARD – FRANTA

Everything  happened so fast, I was just happy that both my vaults were good, I wanted that before anything, I wanted to be myself satisfied with my vaults, I didn’t even think of the score,  I mean I knew I rank first after the first one, but really everything happened so fast and all I felt and feel is pure joy.

The event is great, the organization is great on all levels, I am very happy to be here, these are my first European Chmapionship and everything is great, the area, the people, the atmoshphere.


ELISSA DOWNIE – GREAT BRITAIN

This bronze medal comes definitely unexpected. But it was really hard to see ‘Becky’ fall. I feel sorry for her, especially because I know how hard she works for it and the pressure she is on. But I am sure she will come back even stronger from this.

I came on as second (on the uneven bars), and normally the scores get higher when it goes on. And it did a bit. When Elisabeth (Seitz) scored the same as me, I thought it might be a tie-break-thing, but we both had the same start by and same execution, I joined as third.)

My faults could have definitely been a bit better today, but do all the emotions last night, I wasn’t that sharp.


TEJA BELAK – SLOVENIA

I am very happy with the results, I did my best, so this is it.

I usually have problems all the time with my legs, now I am good, so I am happy. This keeps me going.

My vaults are not so good for the medal, I know I need to work harder.

I’m tired all the time, but I love gymnastics, so this keeps me going.

The organization is very good and the atmoshpehere is lovely. It was such a great surprise that they sang Happy birthday today, at the end of my vault. It was like a present to me.
