We were able to have a quick chat with Pablo after the competition and here’s what he had to say regarding his performance, his health, future upgrades and his tactic for the competition:
How did you feel today about your performance in the competition?
PABLO: I was quite satisfied. My performance was OK. I didn’t fall on the apparatus, so I’m quite happy with that. Of course, I was a little tired after a hard or tough season, but I think it’s OK and the team did well. We got tenth place, it’s OK (laughs). I think in the future, we can improve on that, but quite happy with that.
You’ve had some injuries this year…I believe you had a finger injury and were also recovering from a knee surgery. How is that all going?
PABLO: It’s going great, even after a tough season. I’m happy with that and I’m feeling healthy, but I need to improve my physical condition, but I think next year will be good, yeah.
Do you have any upgrades planned on any apparatus?
PABLO: We’ll see, because now we have some time to try some new elements and do them in the exercise, so we’ll see how that goes, and I hope that I’ll stay healthy so that I can improve my skills. We’ll see next year.
OK, and one last question. I’m just wondering why you chose not to do high bar in the competition today?
PABLO: I would have done high bar in the semi-final, but eh…I think on p-bars I get a way higher score at the moment, so it was quite a tactic to do it that way, but I think it was the best way to plan it, but unfortunately we didn’t get to the semi-final.
Well, hopefully we’ll get to see your high bar again soon!
PABLO: Maybe, yeah!
Thank you so much and good luck with your training
PABLO: Thank you very much!
