“I’m so pleased, not only to win the European title but to also put out my more difficult routine – it feel’s amazing. I’ve been working on this routine for about a year now and really wanted to show people what I could do in a major championships. I made the decision to go for it in this final and it’s paid off, I need to do routine like that if I’m to reach my ultimate goal – if selected for Rio – of an Olympic medal.”
