Team Spain dressed up!
Prelims started and I made the first cut (top 25) in 12th, later that day I made the second cut into semi finals (top 10) in 8th place. I was pretty happy for this, my rides weren't really good so I wasn't sure I'd make it! Next day we did the semi finals, top 10 cut to 5. I was super lucky on this one and managed to get into the finals in 4th place!! I was super stoked!
We had the finals at 5pm on Saturday. There was a lot of people watching, and the hole had dropped a bit. My first two rides were pretty bad, I wasn't centered and could get the moves and feel good in the wave. I started from below on my third ride and managed to pull some better moves. I was happy with my ride, however some of the moves wren't good enough so they didn't score… Finally I ended up in 5th place. Still pretty happy about this result, this is my first final ever on a big competition, and however this was my goal (make finals) for this comp, I knew it'd be really hard.
On the 24th of July of 2010 I injured myself while paddling at the spot in Sort. In November, almost when I recovered form my ribs injury I broke my wrist and torn my ligament… I couldn't paddle any freestyle, kayak or do a lot of other things for 7 months in total. I started paddling early March this year, and with three months of hard work I made it to Worlds. However I know I wasn't still ready to win, next time is going to be different!
