It was not until the very end to see another country overtake the Canadian women, the United States, who finished with 171,000 points. The Brazilian women came to complete the podium with a crop of 158,550 points.
“We managed to stay consistent and saw it as a good preparation for the World Artistic Gymnastics Championship live stream in October, which will serve as Olympic qualifiers,” said Woo. And the World Rhythmic Gymnastics Championship Live Stream will perform 16th september to 22th september 2019.
Building on their four-year-old Pan American experience, Victoria Woo and teammates Ellie Black and Isabela Onyshko helped the rest of the team in their preparations for the Lima Games. According to the Quebecker, the few tips they could share with Brooklyn Moors and Shallon Jade Olsen will have been very beneficial and will have had an impact on their performance.
“I think we really helped them to be better prepared for some details from the beginning. The fact that we went to sleep in the village or that the food was not always very good for example, even if it is edible, it facilitates the adaptation and we had a certain role to play on that side ” , she said, satisfied with the outcome of the day.
Place in the final at the general competition
Not only did Victoria Woo receive a second silver medal in as many Pan American Games appearances, she also managed to qualify for the all-around final at 51,850 points. A result that did not really represent a goal for her, since her participation in the beam was only confirmed Friday.
“We determined the alignments according to the course of the training and I knew that I was going to participate in the beam the day before. So it was difficult for me to set a goal, without knowing if I was going to be four machines, “said the gymnast from Brossard.
Woo just started the day on the beam with 12,600 points and then had 13,100 points in the floor exercise. She had her best leap performance at 13,550 points and completed her uneven bars with 12,600 points.
“It was not a perfect performance, but my coach Michel Charron told me before I left that I had to fight to the end and that’s exactly what I did, so I’m still proud of me! “said the Quebecer, exhausted of her performance.
The all-around final will be presented on Monday and Victoria Woo is looking forward to making the most of her Peruvian experience. “I would like to minimize the few mistakes I made, even though I did not cost my team a lot of points. I especially want to have fun during this first final. “
