Swiss veteran Giulia Steingruber admitted that her performance in qualifications at this week’s World Championships in Montreal was average, but she aims to improve in Friday’s all-around final.

“I would say so-so,” said Steingruber of her 11th-place all-around finish in qualifications. “I’m happy that I had no big mistake, but it could be better. Especially on beam, which was very shaky. But we will see. I hope in the all-around final I can do better.”

Steingruber said she was pleased with her results on vault, for which she qualified third to Saturday’s event final.

“I’m really happy because it wasn’t sure if I would do the double twist(ing Yurchenko) on the second vault,” said Steingruber, the 2016 Olympic vault bronze medalist. “I didn’t have so much time for the preparation, but I said, ‘Yeah, why not?’ I wanted to try it, and I’m happy that it was quite good.”

For the al-around final, Steingruber plans to perform her usual program.

“It will stay the same,” she said. “I just hope that I can improve my routines.”
