Japan's Teramoto speaks after WAG 2nd subdivision qualifications

Japan

DOHA: Comments from Asuka Teramoto of Japan after the second subdivision of women’s qualifications at Aspire Dome on Saturday.

On her mistake on floor exercise (she over-rotated her last tumbling pass).

The mats here are different from the ones we use in Japan, and they are harder, so it feels different when you perform. That was one of the causes. Floor is my hardest event, and especially today it was not good.

On Japan’s plan for Tuesday’s team final, should it qualify.

Since in the team final, three gymnasts will perform (on each apparatus), every score counts. If one person makes a mistake, everything will change, so it’s very important that the three gymnasts do everything precisely, correctly and with no mistakes.
