Hurd speaks after winning silver on floor exercise
DOHA: Comments from Morgan Hurd of the USA after she won silver on floor exercise in the women’s apparatus finals at Aspire Dome on Saturday.
On performing right after team-mate Simone Biles, who eventually won gold, and whether she thought she could beat her:
“I definitely didn’t expect to beat her. Her difficulty is much higher, and she is such an amazing gymnast. There was no way. I just wanted to go out there and perform my absolute best routine.”
On her performance:
“I just wanted to do the best routine, basically a copy of what I did in the all-around final. I definitely accomplished that, and I am really happy with it.”
