" Dear, dear Fans,
I know many of you will be sad and disappointed about this message: Today I have announced my retirement from competitive sports.
This decision was not easy for me, because gymnastics has been such a big part of my life! But during this year too many reasons argue against continuing my career. I will every be connected with this sports and I will try to push gymnastics on another way.
I can’t thank you enough for your numerous and lovely messages. They have touched me. I am so thankful for supporting me and the wonderful moments during the last years. You can’t imagine how much power it was for me! I can definitely look back on an awesome career. And I know what does it mean to have great fans.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.”
