Tejadka Teja Belak assured that Slovenian gymnastics will not remain without gold medals at this year's European games in Minsk. After four years in Baku won the gold medal Saša Bertoncelj won on a horse-drawn horse, this time Belakova repeated his success in his discipline, jump. Adela Sain won the fifth place in the salon with a score of 12,666.
Four of the qualifiers succeeded in two great leaps and won the first favorite of Russia Angelina Melnikova, who had to meet the second place. The third was the Hungarian Sara Sarah.
"This is my career success and a blow to the European Championships." In qualifying, the competitors were equal, I knew I could win the medal but did not expect gold. "I really managed to make two great jumps," were the first words of Belakova. .
An unexpected extension of the season
Belakova initially performed in Minsk, nor did he plan on it because he did not know the system, after which he was assigned the games. Since he did not play at the European Championship at all, he thought he would not be able to enter the game at all, so he was surprised when he got there.
"It was an unexpected extension of the season for me, it is difficult to train for two more weeks, I admit, especially because I had different plans earlier, but it did," she said.
In the finals, he succeeded in almost perfect performance with otherwise less demanding leaps. "Today I was fortunate that I had two big leaps, hard to do better, but the jump was a bit less challenging than the European Championship, after which I was very disappointed. , "Belak's success in Minsk means compensating for disappointment at the European Championship in Szczecin.
The competition in Minsk is better than in the World Cup
"There was a bit more competition than here. There were a few riders in Minsk, but the competition was much better than the World Cup. We were also equal with many, so they decided the tens that were favorable to me." said a 25-year-old woman from Ljubljana.
Belakova admits he was nervous before the end, but was in the hands of the last, sixth in the final. So it could stay long in the heating room.
"The first two must jump without heating, stand in the hallway and wait for ten minutes so I can say that I was lucky," said another Slovenny who would return to her homeland after returning home. She trained her for ten days, and then she and her family and boy went to vacation on the island of Pag.
"With such jumps as I had here at the World Championship I have nothing to ask for"
Upon returning from vacation, preparations for the World Cup will begin, where Tokyo will end the Olympic Games next year. "I understand that with such jumps as I had here at the World Championships, I have nothing to ask for, for the finals, the jump should be difficult. But with that I still do not, I have some sort of goal at the World Championships," she said.
Since he wants to enter the Olympics through a lot of things, he'll let him go for some time. "I will dedicate more time to other tools, I think I have good exercises on other tools, so I have a good chance of qualifying for the Olympics, but I have to endure my leg, my ankle with which I have problems, especially in the country."
Adela Sain won the fifth place in the salon with a score of 12,666. After qualifying, where was hell, she had health problems. Because of her bowels and abdominal pain, she had to seek help at the hospital, where research showed nothing was serious.
On Saturday, her condition improved, she could exercise normally, but the chance for collages was small. Competitors should make a mistake but not, so only one competitor in the finals surpassed Slovenia.
