Kate SHORTMAN (GBR)

On her routine:

"I felt really good until the last element, which wasn't so good. It is quite risky and nerve-racking.

On SHORTMAN's routine:

"She's upset but she will be ready to go again (on Tuesday)."

"It's a young team and tiredness could be a factor. We don't train full-time."
