Tofig Aliyev: "In the future, I will try to exchange the silver medal of the European Championship for gold"

"The silver medal was my first individual medal at the European Championship."

Idman.biz reports that this was said by Azerbaijani gymnast Tofig Aliyev.

The athlete, who stood out at the European Championship held in Guimaraes, Portugal, took the second place individually after the victory in the team competition. He said that he was determined to take the first place: "My combination could have brought a gold medal. I still feel defeated and I will definitely join the fight for the championship in the future."

He also supported his teammate Mikhail Malkin, who was satisfied with the 4th place: "Everyone knows Mikhail's level. He is a two-time World Champion. Everyone knows what he is capable of. He will definitely make us happy again."

Aliyev also touched on the gold medal in the team competition: "The fight was very intense. We had competitors like Great Britain, Denmark and Portugal. But we proved the title of the best team in the world by becoming the European Champion."
