On their competition today [the French junior team sits in second place behind Russia after the first subdivision]:

"It was our first big competition, it was very sensational. The team did very well, we really competed as a team and helped each other. Even though we had some mistakes, we helped each other to focus on our next routines.

"We were really inspired by our senior team [that beat Russia in women's senior qualification yesterday]. We watched some of their routines last night and then we prepared for our competition.

"In the end, we hope to end at least amongst the top five or maybe even better. We know we had some mistakes, so we have to wait for tonight to see the final results."
