“Nastia is good, and she is clamped components on purpose – this is such a test for the endurance of her nerves. Because if she can withstand this pressure from the judges – even yes, I can swing in, say it’s pressure from the judges – it will be very cool. And when they finally do put her on – she’s going to be put on straight. I believe in it, I’m really looking forward to the moment when there will finally be normal grades,” said Medvedeva, a two-time world champion.
