At the end I die, says Moors of her floor exercise character
DOHA: Acclaimed for her creative floor exercise routine, Canada’s Brooklyn Moors enjoys absorbing herself and engaging audiences in her portrayal of a delicate, passionate and ultimately tragic character.
Moors embodies a music-box ballerina who comes to life when the lid is lifted and expires when the lid is shut.
“It starts out soft and sharp, and then it gets passionate, and then the box slowly closes again,” Moors told www.worldgymdoha18.com after Wednesday’s training session. “I dance as well I can and then at the end I die, you could say.”
Should Moors finish among the top eight on floor exercise in qualifications, she will advance to the floor exercise final, where she could improve upon her fifth-place finish at the 2017 Worlds in Montreal.
The 17-year-old is not counting on an encore, though.
“I don’t have that set goal to make individual finals,” said Moors, whose older sister, Victoria, competed at the 2012 London Olympic Games. “Of course, that is on the side, but I’m more focused on my team.”
“We’re going to go out there and do the best we can as a team. We don’t have a main goal. We just want to do it for each other.”
