Canada's Brooklyn Moors: 'Learning To Control The Nerves'
(4 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)

“This is so surreal and I’m so excited, because being at home and competing in front of my family and friends is such an amazing experience,” said Brooklyn Moors, who qualified 15th to Friday’s all-around final and fifth to Saturday’s floor exercise final. “I did some mistakes, but I’m happy I did, because now I can work on those and know what I need to do for the next couple days and the future.”

Moors, the younger sister of 2012 Canadian Olympian Victoria Moors, said she is still adjusting to her high level of risk on balance beam, where she earned her lowest score in qualifications.

“I’m learning to control the nerves,” she said. “It’s all new for me. I went from not a lot of difficulty to a lot of difficulty in a short period of time, so I’m just starting to gain experience in how to handle that.”

Moors said she was thrilled to score well for her passionate routine on floor exercise, her favorite event.

“As a lot of people know, I like to perform and I like to dance,” she said. “That feeling of doing it in front of a home crowd is even better. I think I’ve always had that (presentation) since I was little, because, again, I didn’t have a lot of difficulty, so I had to use my execution and engage people.”
