Armenia's gymnastics team member Arthur Davtyan spoke from Glasgow to the ANOC reporter telling about his health and the Olympic Qualification. “Before the Championship I was feeling unwell. Even after arriving here I was feeling bad. I didn't train a week in Yerevan and only in Glasgow I restarted the trainings. I got better only 3 days before the Championship. In some sense I fell behind missing a week. If I carry on performing well, we’ll get Olympic Qualification”, said he.
