Armenian gymnastics team’s head coach Hakob Serobyan summarized the Armenian gymnasts’ performances at the 9th Artistic Gymnastics World Cup in Doha in a conversation with reporters.
“I am very pleased with the guys’ performances. They accomplished all their tasks. Before leaving for Doha we had a training camp which reflected positively on our athletes. These assessments guarantee medals both at the World Championship and at the Olympics. As for Artur Davtyan he had no special aim of conquering a medal in Doha. He came out on all apparatus and did the first leap well but made a mistake during the second one, but, luckily, orientated quickly and finished it without getting hurt. Anyway, placing forth is not so bad, he slightly conceded to the prize winners. The most important for Artur is the Test Event in Rio where he must reconfirm the gained qualification”, Serobyan said.
At the 9th Artistic Gymnastics World Cup in Doha Harutyun Merdinyan finished first in the pommel horse and Vahagn Davtyan and Artur Tovmasyan won silver and bronze, respectively, in the rings.
