The bronze medalist of the World Gymnastics Championship, Harutyun Merdinyan told that the competition was very intense.
“To tell the truth the tension was huge. The athletes of other countries came there like me to get Olympic Qualification. In individual fight it’s very difficult to grab a medal. It’s hard to say whether I’ll manage to repeat the same result at the Rio Olympics, everything depends on preparation and trainings. Perhaps we’ll be able to fight for a medal if I am well prepared”, said Merdinyan.
