Antonina, tell, please, how is your preparation for the World Championship? What stage are you in? Can you say that you became stronger?
- This year I have not my best form because of the numerous injuries on both hands. I went through two stages of preparation for the Worlds. All I could do in a year, I did. Now the table will show. My coach is Aliyev Ahmed, he is preparing me for the Worlds.
Last time you surprised many, defeating the favorite of the category - Egle Vaitkute on her left arm.
Are you ready to take gold this time and beat Egle?
– Last year I was a little lucky, in a strap Egle pulled a joint and it was painful to fight, it was seen from the video. She is a real professional, she did not give a sign and continued the fight. I think I was lucky at the last World Championships.
This year, Egle has every chance again to be the first on both hands. She is a very strong and experienced athlete. In addition to Egle, there are also many other strong rivals, we must not forget about them.
Despite Antonina's not too optimistic forecasts, we expect to see the best fight and wish her to defend the highest awards at the upcoming world championships.
