Blichfleldt who is hoping to take the Gold medal this year revealed that she is dreaming but is not getting too far ahead of herself.

The 21-year old will face Evgeniya Kosetskaya in the semi-finals of the European Games in Minsk.

- I have played Chloe many times and I know she is a great fighter and is very strong. I knew I had to be stronger and fight even more than her, it worked well and I kept the focus on my game plan, Blichfeldt said.

- There were a few times that I fell out but I came back quite quickly.

- We all know what colour we want the medal to be, I need to take it one match at a time. We have to dream and they are very high.

- I believe in myself and will fight for everything again tomorrow, she continued.
