Mexico's Moreno speaks after winning bronze in women’s vault finals


DOHA: Comments from Alexa Moreno of Mexico after she won bronze on vault in the women’s apparatus finals at Aspire Dome on Friday.

On her performance:

“In the final, anything can happen. There were only two gymnasts left, and I was like, ‘I’m still in second place’ but I didn’t want to have that hope because it kind of sucks if you don’t get (the medal). I don’t think my second vault was my best, but still it was my best (Worlds vault) final yet. In the previous ones I made huge errors, so it’s amazing.”

On winning the Mexican women’s first medal in Worlds history:

“It’s awesome. It’s overwhelming, too. We have that kind of possibility to be at the high level, and that’s amazing because, knowing that we can be there and it can be real, I can keep dreaming. Because it really can be true.”
