RIO DE JANEIRO, August 16 /TASS/. Russian gymnast David Belyavsky took bronze in men’s parallel bars in Rio scoring 15,783 points in the final.
Ukrainian Oleg Verniaiev won the gold medal (16,041) and Danell Leyva (15,900) took silver.
Parallel bars were the last discipline in gymnastics in which Russian gymnasts had competed. Russian gymnasts - men and women - have won 8 medals at the Rio Olympic Games (1 gold, 4 silver and 3 bronze).
David Belyavsky was born in Votkinsk (the Udmurt Republic) on February 23, 1992. Belyavsky is the 2016 Olympic vice-champion in teams’ events; the 2015 European Games champion in teams’ competitions who also won two medals in separate disciplines. The four-times European champion, he won an individual multidiscipline event in Moscow in 2013. At the 2016 Olympics, he was fourth in the individual multidiscipline competitions and fifth on the horse.
In 2013, Bekyavsky won the University Games in Kazan, the Republic of Tatarstan, in the teams’ event. Parallel bars have always been Belyavsky’s trump card. He is the 2016 European title holder in parallel bars and the vice-champion of the European Games. Belyavsky used to train at the Lokomotiv children’s sports school in Yekaterinburg (the Urals).
The Olympic Games will close on August 21.
