Featured in the cover story of the July/August 2017 issue of International Gymnast magazine, Melanie De Jesus Dos Santos of France told IG she quietly reveled in her surprising success at the European Championships in Romania in April, where she won the all-around bronze medal.

“I understood it was real as soon as I put my feet on the podium,” De Jesus Dos Santos said. “This was really very moving even though I didn’t really show it to the camera.”

Added coach Eric Hagard: “The all-around bronze medal was a kind of ‘secret’ expectation somewhere in my mind, a good surprise and a big achievement after her knee surgery 15 months earlier.”
