"We know our task here will not easy as we had here the best teams in the world. This the strongest ever World Championship because we had here the strongest teams."
"Now we are at the end of the season and in good physical and mental state, so we are fighting to get a final berth here,"
"The stars of this competition are too many and so we expect to see a lot of them in their utmost performance in most of the like Fabiana, Sheilla Castro, Ekaterina Gamova and others, so it will not be easy for a team to gain the gold medal hers."
