What is your overall feeling from the European Championship?

It is an amazing feeling, we fought so hard and too much to get this difficult and impressive medal... I can't describe this moment...

How difficult was the way of your Kumite Team to the Bronze medal? How about your opponents from Ukraine during the last fights?

We did a very good job in the eliminations, we beat Russia, Azerbaijan, Spain and we lost against Turkey, we know that we did our best and that for the Bronze medal it is just one step but we need to stay concentrated because Ukraine is a good and a difficult opponent so we gave everything we can and we did it...

Thank you very much for the interview. We wish you all the Best in the future. Karate Live
