Finally, in the free body, with the best score and the third best score, Martina Maggio and Angela Andreoli will compete in their debut.
In tears, stunned by emotion, Asia immediately thought of her dad: “He is going through a difficult period due to a health problem and this medal is all for him.” Then, she analyzes what she remembers of her trial: “I knew I to be able to fight for the top positions, but even get to put the gold medal around his neck, is incredible. I’m so happy. I think I also said some nonsense in these excited moments, because I’m not understanding anything … I didn’t mess around and at the parallels, the last tool I didn’t think is anything other than stay focused and take every jump. I’m also happy for my sister that she had the goal of hitting the final on the asymmetrical parallels and she did it with the best score. “
