Packed season ahead for Armenian gymnasts

First, the athletes will compete in the European Championship for a quota to the European Games, due to be held in Minsk this summer.

“The quotas are reserved for prize-winning places. The Olympic quotas can be won in 8 series of the World Cup, and we’ll have athletes in 4 of them,” said Serobyan.

In just a few days, four gymnasts (Artur Davtyan, Vahagn Davtyan, Artur Tovmasyan and Harutyun Merdinyan) will travel to Germany for the World Cup (November 20-26). The other competitions of the series are scheduled for 2019 and 2020.

“The athletes with the highest point tally, earned over the two years, will go to Tokyo Olympics. Our team will miss the competitions in Azerbaijan, so apart from Germany, we’ll have the tournament in Doha,” noted Serobyan.

After the World Cup competitions in Germany the team will travel to Moscow for the annual Voronin Cup.
