YUSIFOVA AND DURUNDA COMPLETE THE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS’ FIRST DAY'S QUALIFICATION

28.08.2013

The gymnasts will compete for two kinds of medals today. At first, our gymnasts Lala Yusifova and Marina Durunda performed in a qualification with a hoop. Lala received 16.35 points and Marina got 17.00 points with this apparatus.

Then, athletes executed an exercise with a ball. Yusifova received 14.175 points for the composition. Such a low result is explained by the fact that she lost apparatus during her performance. Durunda's exercise was valued at 16.883 points.

According to the results of a preliminary stage, the eight finalists competing for medals will be defined. It should be noted that participants are divided into eight subgroups and will complete the qualification in the evening. Afterwards, the best eight gymnasts will take part in the contest for medals.
