Και ναι! Χάλκινο μετάλλιο σήμερα στα 25 μέτρα στο Παγκόσμιο Κύπελλο του Μονάχου! Παρόλες τις αδυναμίες σ’ έναν απ’τους δυσκολότερους τελικούς της καριέρας μου, κατάφερα να κερδίσω αυτό το μετάλλιο και να μη βγάλω το χαμόγελο απ’τα χείλη μου!!! Ευχαριστώ τον μεγαλύτερο coach Τάσο Κορακάκη που σε μία φαινομενικά “εκτός φόρμας” χρονιά με κάνει να παραμένω στο βάθρο σε αυτές τις μεγάλες διοργανώσεις! / Bronze medal at the @issf_official World Cup in Munich!👊 Despite I faced some difficulties during the finals, I managed to win this medal!
