Women’s Artistic gymnasts have added another gold medal to the common medal box.
Gymnasts Marina Nekrasova, Yuliya Inshina and Yekaterina Tishkova won the gold medal with total score of 99.300 points in team competition at Women’s Artistic Gymnastics events, held within the framework of the 4th Islamic Solidarity Games.
The Turkish team grabbed the silver medal (96.050 points), while the team of Indonesia received the bronze medal (68.150 points).
It should be noted that Marina and Yuliya reached the finals in all 4 apparatus, while Tishkova will participate in the finals on 3 apparatus. However, as per the rules, only 2 gymnasts from each country are entitled to take part in the finals. Therefore, Marina will not perform in the finals on Floor and Uneven Bars and Yekaterina will not take part in the final on Balance Beam.
It should be mentioned that Azerbaijan has already received its second gold medal at gymnastics events held within the framework of the Games. Apparatus finals awaits both our Rhythmic and Artistic gymnasts ahead.
