On the second day of the World Cup qualifiers in gymnastics in Koper, Tjaša Kysselef showed a solid performance on the pole vault and won the second final of this competition. She received her eighth grade for the exercise – 11,500 points.
Lucija Hribar was ninth in the ground without a final of the top eight. In addition to Kysselef, Hribar also performed on the pole, but after a fall of 10,400 she finished in 18th place. As a result, the 20-year-old gymnast performed better in the ground floor qualifiers (11,700), where, after a solid performance, she is the first reserve for Sunday’s final performance.
“It’s a nice success for me, but I want a better performance for Sunday’s final. I would like to show the composition the way it is meant to be. I have problems on the shaft as I have not successfully completed the assembly for a long time. Somehow, when I perform on this tool, I feel anxiety, discomfort, but I try to shake it off. My main goal is to get things to the bottom and I’m very happy to stay on the shaft,said Kysselef.
This year, the Slovenian camp reached five finals in Koper. Already on the first day, Teja Belak and Kysselef were successful in the qualifications on the vault, Hribar on the two-height barbell and Nikolaj Božič on the ground floor.
On Saturday, there will be the first day of the finals with four Slovenians, and on Sunday, Kysselef na gredi will also perform. You will be able to watch the broadcast of the finals on Saturday (15.15) and Sunday (15.20) on TV Slovenija 2 and MMC.
