Li Shijia: “My Excitement Helped me Vault Better”

Expected to make her highly anticipated all-around return, Li Shijia is coming into 2021 National Championships as a veteran. She was a member of the 2019 World Championships squad and is the reigning world bronze medalist on beam. Unfortunately injuries prevented her from competing all-around during 2020 national championships, limiting her only to bars. However the tables have turned this week where Li will be looking to finish towards the top of the all-around standings.

During podium training Li commented on her progress:

“Across all four events everything went well. Back home my vault was lacking a little, but today I could vault a little more easily. I think it’s because I’m really excited, it gives me a lot more confidence.”

On beam and floor Li said “beam was okay, on floor I was also lacking a little bit with some elements. But on bars everything went really well.”
