GLASGOW - Comments from Noemi Francesca LINARI (ITA) after the fourth subdivision of the women's gymnastics qualification at the SSE Hydro on Thursday.

Noemi Francesca LINARI (ITA)

On the most difficult thing she had to cope with during the competition:

"For all of us it was hard to react after the injury to our team-mate Sofia BUSATO. We were really worried about that and we felt really nervous as well."

On what made her proud of her team:

"Despite our team-mate getting injured on the vault, we managed to stay focused and I can say that our performances were pretty good overall."

On the ritual before every exercise:

"I like to close my eyes and think about the perfect performance. Then, the performance ends up being far from perfect but I think this helps me out a lot anyway."
