"IT'S BEEN such a fun week to be here. The facility is amazing and my entire team has been great. It's been wonderful trainign with my teammates this week, both American, Danish, and Australian, and it really showcases how unified and international the vaultiing community is," said Divita. "It feels really good to produce a personal best on this final day of individaul competition. It's my horse's first season and we've grown a lot together. I'm going to keep vaulting with him moving forward and this feels like a top of the pyramid and another step in my vaulting career."
