"I'm grateful. Grateful for my team, because they were always with me in the past few months, with a lot of tears, a lot of crying, a lot of challenging moments, doubts, and negative thoughts, they were always there. So I'm really grateful for them.
"I received many messages from people supporting me, which warmed my heart. Today I was just happy, I enjoyed climbing so much and cried when I topped the fourth boulder. I did feel relieved because I thought I almost forgot how to compete, but I guess I didn't. And I flashed the slab as well!
"I don't really pay attention to the other competitors. I always try to be the best version of myself, and to be stronger every year than the year before, but I do feel that the field is getting stronger. That is why we compete. You want to win when everybody has their best day. With a stronger field, there is more fun and more challenges. Sometimes the boulders in finals are a bit too easy, but tonight we had the perfect round."
