While the athlete enjoyed his experience in the Japanese capital, his results fell short of his expectations.
This is not necessarily the performance you expected. Still a great experience. I had a lot of fun and did good gymnastics in general It is to explain.
Physically, I was in perfect shape. But from the first devices, I could feel the pressure on my shoulder. I failed to deliver the performance I wanted.
From the beginning of the competition, the gymnast admitted that he felt unstable.
It’s a program [aux barres parallèles] I am relatively confident with them and where I usually do well. From the first movement, I was a little surprised and my muscles tightened. Everything after that was more difficult. I doubted myself and everything was rigid. I felt a lot of pressure. Despite everything, I managed to pass the program. A little juice ran out at the end of the outlet.
