Yekaterinburg student takes first place in European artistic gymnastics competition

David Bielawski, a student at Yekaterinburg's Lokomotiv youth sports school, took first place in artistic gymnastics at last week's Bulgaria European Championships in artistic gymnastics.

Bielawski also received a gold medal for the artistic gymnastics team competition despite a few technical errors in the qualifying round. He also took home a silver medal for his performance on the uneven bars, Ekburg.ru reports.

"Generally, in Yekaterinburg created good conditions for sports," Bielawski said, according to Ekburg.ru. "One of the indicators that Yekaterinburg [is a] sports city is [our hosting] of the 2018 FIFA World Cup."
