When we are attacked , we had to constantly be on guard to ensure that judges are not fined . There were moments when , in my opinion, they were wrong.
And in the semi-finals and the match for the third place we have great nervous. Of course, to blame somewhere and the wind is not enough ... New Zealanders are certainly strong.

This is one of those occasions when we meet athletes at various competitions , and each time it gets stronger and stronger. Before that, we met with him in sparring in Vladivostok and in Estonia.
