Marie Da Silva Tortosa confessed her feelings after this competition and revealed her next goals. Interview.

What was your goal during this Championship?

As I trained on the official route only two weeks before, my goal was to enjoy the competition and realize a time around ten seconds.

In which state of mind did you start the competition?

As the first three girls are untouchable as they train every day I start this competition relaxed, I just wanted to enjoy and improve. I enjoyed a lot during the training but also during the competition.

Charlotte Durif and Marie Da Silva Tortosa.

What do you think of your result?

I think it is a good result. I am really happy of my times even if I still want to do better. But I have to be realistic, with five training sessions we can’t compete with the betters of the discipline.

What is the next goal?

It will be the French Cup of speed at Echirolles the 24th of May where I would like to improve my stopwatch.

A last word?

I want to thank the person that enables me to train on the official route during the last two weeks, she will recognize herself.
