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.
From October 23 to November 1 the capital city of Glasgow in Scotland is hosting the World Gymnastics Championships which is qualifying for the 2016 Summer Olympics. Armenia is represented there by Vahagn Davtyan, Harutyun Merdinyan, Arthur Davtyan and Houry Gebeshyan.
