Armenia’s gymnastics team member Arthur Davtyan opines that the fight for the Olympic Qualifications will be easier to win in the «Test Event» in Rio.
“Our athletes performed really well. Vahagn Davtyan did everything he could. My exercises were simplified because of my dizziness. I could recover before the competition began. It will be easier to win in the «Test Event» in Rio than it was in Glasgow. If something special doesn’t happen I think it will be lighter in Rio”, said Arthur Davtyan.
