Armenian gymnastics team coach: The best option is not to go to Baku

Head coach of the Armenian national gymnastics team Hakob Serobyan, as well as Armenian gymnasts Harutyun Merdinyan and Arthur Tovmasyan summed up the results of the year.

“The year was successful. Our athletes won seven medals (1 gold, 2 silver, 4 bronze). Harutyun Merdinyan took the 5th place at the World Championship. I think this is a good result. Our gymnasts also won medals at Voronin Cup held in Moscow,” Serobyan said.

“In 2018 our team will take part in the European Youth Championship, which will be rated. The Youth European Championship of 2020 will be held in Baku, and we decided not to take part. The president of the European gymnastic union is an Azerbaijani, due to which important tournaments will be held in Baku. But we decided not to go there”.

In turn, Harutyun Merdinyan said if the coaches are happy with his results, everything is fine.

“I won a bronze medal at the European Championships, and took the 5th place at the World Championship. We must continue to work and achieve better results.”
