Emotional tension grew exponentially every day," commented Elizaveta Goncharova, the member of the team. – The results of the game were a little unexpected for me, but it is good to feel that self-criticism was excessive. We worked hard to get five points for two contests, so I am very glad that our efforts were not in vain.
