Additional information
General
OLYMPIC PRESSURE
She began competing regularly for Spain in 2017, and has felt the pressure of joining the Spanish rhythmic gymnastics team that won the silver medal at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. "We had the highest bar. We were assumed to be the substitutes of the Olympic runners-up of Rio. People get used to success very quickly and expect results very soon. At the same time, we put a lot of pressure on ourselves because we wanted to make it perfect, so the beginnings were terrible. But now, we have adapted, we have grown as gymnasts, we have been progressing over the months and have been working very well." (proyectofer.es, 09 May 2019)
