Euro 2015 Artistic Gymnastics: two beautiful medals for France
France got two medals during the Euro 2015 artistic gymnastics, taking place in Montpellier (southern France) from the 15th to the 19th of April 2015.
A first silver medal
The first medal was won on Saturday 18th April by the now vice-champion of Europe Samir Aït Saïd. The latter, after a wonderful performance at the rings, clinched his 4th European medal with 15.566 points.
A second astonishing medal
The second medal of the gymnastic euros, a bronze medal on the balance beam, was won by the very young Claire Martin, aged 16 years. A victory as astonishing as it was unexpected, although the gymnast admitted after the trials she had as an objective to get a place on the podium.
During this finale, on Sunday 19th April, the French girl, who had to wait for her seven contestants to perform before going herself (she was the last one to perform), was captivating from the beginning to the end. With 14.200 points, she got the 3rd place and her 1st European medal.
