Johanna Quaas with congratulations to Munich and greetings to Freyburg

Germany's 96 years old senior gymnast Johanna QUAAS was overjoyed about the success of the two golden girls to the European Championships in Munich:
"What this Elisabeth Seitz has done for a big and long gymnastics career is unique, now even crowned with gold, is incredible! My warmest congratulations! I also know what hard work it is to stay on the apparatus for so long! And the fact that an 18-year-old is also top shows which development impulses this Emma Malewski has received in the Chemnitz gymnastics school. As a former coach, I know how long-term such development work must be done! Especially we age group gymnasts appreciate this, because all of us have been staying on the apparatus for decades, for the sake of health and performance.

"... this was my last victory with 92 years in Freyburg!"
