Successful Belarusian gymnast, Melitina Staniouta is about to retire since she has no more motivation. Melita is suffering from a left foot injury before Olympic Games. Now the pain is becoming more intense.
“My foot is on pain. I thought that I could recover after holidays. Because of this pain I can’t execute some elements.
Melitina Staniouta was one of the favorites for podium position in Rio but some mistakes during her clubs routine made her to finish without a medal.
“I realized these mistakes were quite silly. If only I had the opportunity to repeat this routine just once again, I could execute perfectly one hundred or two hundrer times again. I can say also that 4 years ago, in London Olympic Games in 2012 I wasn’t ready enough. In Rio I felt I was pretty fit. In spite of being sad for these mistakes and so that not getting a medal, I can say I did everything I could.”- said Staniouta.
“A medal for me is my love for gymnastics, the audience and my fans”
