Rio Olympics: Armenian gymnast to have skill named after her

PanARMENIAN.Net - Houry Gebeshian, representing Armenia in the Rio Olympics, competed in the women’s gymnastics. Gebeshian performed at the all-around competition to score 53, 748 points, Panorama.am reports.

She is likely to have a skill named after her on the uneven bars—a mount that includes a 360 degree turn to get from the low bar to the high bar—and earning the support of the crowd early on Sunday, August 7.

However, Gebeshian will leave the big sport after the end of the Olympics, ANOC press service reports.

“I have a wonderful feeling because I have finally performed at the Olympic Games. I am very proud and excited to represent Armenia at the Games. I think I am pleased with my result as I did my best.

Every time after my performance I kiss the apparatus because the Olympic Games are my last competition. Gymnastics has given much to me and I am very grateful to it,” she said.

At the 31st Summer Olympics, Armenia has three representatives in gymnastics – Artur Davtyan, Harutyun Merdinyan and Houry Gebeshian. Current European champion Harutyun Merdinyan has qualified for the final due on August 14.
