The athlete revealed that “two weeks ago I had a foot injury and I thought I wouldn’t even be able to compete and I did. I know I am strong and my brother has always been by my side. It’s fantastic to get this title and make Portugal proud”, she concluded.
For Pedro Walgode, this achievement means «the recognition of all the work invested: it’s been so many years – we started in 2004 and the pair are eight years old. At the beginning we started and we didn’t even know if the project was going to work. Reaching the world title, at a time like this, with five gold medals, was the icing on the cake, we couldn’t be happier”, he said.
Well Done Ana and Pedro!
