The message reads, in part:
“I am genuinely pleased that you came far ahead of your competitors from different countries and demonstrated deep fundamental knowledge, exceptional dedication and ability to fight to the end and win. Of course, I would also like to extend my words of acknowledgement to your parents, coaches and mentors who helped you achieve success.
Please pass my warmest congratulations to your teammates who won silver and bronze medals.”
