Israeli Artistic Gymnast Dolgopyat Wins Gold at European Championship

Israeli artistic gymnast Artem Dolgopyat won a gold medal for his floor routine at the European Artistic Gymnastics Championship in Munich on Sunday, August 21, despite suffering an injury to his foot a month ago.

Dolgopyat received a result of 14.966 for his performance, putting him in front of the seven other finalists. Hungary’s Christopher Masaruch took the silver medal with a score of 14.600, and Jake German from Britain won the bronze, with a result of 14.433.

“I am very, very tired now, but happy,” Dolgopyat told a German reporter and said that he had only managed to train for two weeks due to his injury. “But I did it and I am delighted. Thank you to everyone for the encouragement,” he added.

Culture and Sports Minister Chili Tropper congratulated Dolgopyat on his achievement and praised him as an “amazing gymnast and athlete.” (TOI / VFI News)
