Double Croatian Olympian Ana Đerek (GK Marjan) became a two-time Croatian champion by winning gold on the beams (13,050) and floor (13,350).
“I finished the last competition this year which was full of competitions and I think they were all done successfully. When I look back, I wouldn’t change anything. I have very few stumbles this year. Now again after a break from the World Cups and the Olympics I have shown two good exercises – 13,050 on the beam and 13,300 on the floor. I did both exercises really well and I am very satisfied. I came to perform in two disciplines and I won gold in both. I am overjoyed because it is really two difficult weeks for me and because of my obligations in college and life, training, everything. I’m going to a wedding tomorrow, and then I have a few days off. I am ready for a vacation more than for anything else,” said the double champion Ana Đerek.
The all-around champion in the senior competition is Christina Zwicker (ZTD Hrvatski sokol) who collected 49,550 points, silver is Petra Furač (GK Sokol Karlovac) with 48,950, and bronze Ira Benčinić (GK Rijeka) with 36,900 points. Zwicker also won 4 more individual medals – gold on uneven bars (12,250), silver on the beam (12,800) and floor (11,850) and bronze on the vault (12,075).
“I can proudly say that I am the all-around champion of Croatia. I am still gold on the bars, silver on the beam and the floor, and third on the vault. I am going home to Zagreb with 5 medals, which I am overjoyed with, especially because this competition was after the World Championships in Japan when the top form had actually passed. Admittedly, I have more one competition this year, at the Hungarian Open. They invited me to be part of their team. I am proud that they chose me,” said Zwicker.
