Fuentes shared the following statement on Instagram after the rescue:
What a day!!! I think I had all kind of possible emotions! It’s late at night and just wanted to say thank you for all your messages. I’m so happy you enjoyed our choreographies and we cannot wait to show a better performance at finals. We have so much room for improvement but hope and believe is so important and today we had plenty of it! We are going to do even better at finals!!
Anita’s solo was so good too, it was her best performance ever, she just pushed through her limits and she found them 😅 but Anita is ok and the doctors also said she is fine. We all know it happens in other sports: cycling, marathon, track and field… some don’t make it to the final line and some even finish crawling or passing out. Our sport is very hard too. Now it’s time to rest and recover. Tomorrow is highlight day and free duet finals! Ready to give our best 💪💪💪
