Melnikova comments on her performance

DOHA: Angelina Melnikova (RUS) commented after she finished fifth in the WAG All-around final.

On her performance:

“I am overall happy and excited about my performance. Ï made a mistake on vault, which gave an opportunity for my opponents to take the lead and win.”

On competing against Simone Biles of the USA, and if mistakes of Biles and compatriot Morgan Hurd affected her strategy:

“It was a great pleasure to perform with Simone. I don’t follow my opponents’ scores. I just have my own job to focus on. That’s what I always do — I focus on myself.”
