I am twice proud that I introduced a new element into the women's artistic gymnastics, which is named after me.  I am happy with my performance. I did everything I could to be among the best 24. We are waiting for the final results. My coach, Levon Karakhanian, was also pleased with my performance. Participation in the Olympics has been an invaluable experience for me.
