CAPRIORIU STUMBLES AT FINAL HURDLE

CAPRIORIU STUMBLES AT FINAL HURDLE

Automne Pavia: 3 place at -63kg

I came to Astana to win a gold medal. After my loss in the semi final against Matsumoto Kaori of course I was sad. And also after I won the bronze medal I could not be really happy because I wanted to be in the final. But now I can smile.

It was a long time without judo for me because of a knee injury. Last year I won a bronze – this year again I think this is a good result.

All fights against Matsumoto are very tight. But I will use this to learn and to be better to beat her in Rio next year. 

I have some problems with my knee and she attacked always this leg. But I hope in the future that I can beat her. I will work hard on this. 

I won a silver medal at the World Championships – this is amazing and it makes me really happy.
