It gave me quite a big confidence for these Europeans, where I'll be going with big confidence.Are you aiming for a gold medal?
This time I am going to the European championships with only one goal: to win. I am healthy. I feel in good shape. I expect to have a good competition.Are you going to try to revenge on the past as well, because of the fact that you were away for so long from training because of injuries?
I don't like to revenge on the past. The injuries which I have had I've forgotten about. Right now I want to prove who I really am.Will it be a strong duel between you and Diana Chelaru on floor?
I don't think we necessarily have to talk about a duel. It's important to realize that we are two Romanians with high chances to medal on this apparatus. Would you have wished that these European Championships to have a team competition and not just an individual competition?
For me it doesn't matter if its an individual or team championship. It is am important competition where I know that I have to do my job the best I can.How prepared are you for these championships?
I have trained a lot in the last 4 months, especially on floor and vault.Are you going to compete on beam?
Yes, I will compete on it in when in order to do my entrance in the competition.
