This year I'm finishing my ninth grade exams, and it would be good to pass the exams. And in gymnastics, I want to go to the European Youth Olympic Festival in Turkey and do well.

Grishina said, "The results were quite normal on the day of qualifications. I made a mistake on floor and took second place in the all-around, but unfortunately I didn’t advance to the final on floor. But in the team final I didn’t fall anywhere, and I was first all-around. This says that making a mistake is not allowable. As for the mood of the team, we're sorry that it was a little insufficient to reach first place in Brussels. So we need to polish our programs for victory in London. To win with the team, we will have to increase our difficulty on vault. My vault in Brussels wasn’t competitive because of its low start value. I would like to make my vault more difficult, and increase my difficulty on bars a little. I want to polish my choreography on floor, so my turns will be more stable. I would like to tell my fans to cheer for me in London and I will really, really try to please them with my performances."
