GLASGOW - Comments from Jonna ADLERTEG (SWE) following the women's gymnastics senior podium training at the SSE Hydro on Tuesday.


On her podium training at Glasgow 2018:

"It was not perfect today, but it was quite good. I am focusing on uneven bars and I am quite happy with how it went. My knee [after tearing her ACL and meniscus in 2016], is much better now [compared to last year]. In Glasgow I will only compete on bars, but next year I want to do the all-around again."

On how she managed to stay motivated despite her knee injury: 

"It was a lot of rehab, a lot of strength training and it took a lot of time to heal. But I was able to keep practising bars all the time and that is my favourite event, so it was easier to train for my goals."
