GA: BELYAVSKIY (RUS) - silver in parallel bars

GLASGOW - Comments from David BELYAVSKIY (RUS) after winning silver in the men's parallel bars at The SSE Hydro on Sunday.

David BELYAVSKIY (RUS) - silver

On winning silver:

"I didn't achieve all I wanted, but I am happy with what I've got. The main goal was the third gold medal in a row for the team tournament so I am very happy about that."

On which apparatus he prefers between the pommel horse and parallel bars:

"On the pommel, every time I learn something new, while on the parallel bars it's more difficult to learn new things so I just do what I can."

On being named the 'most elegant gymnast' at the Bern 2016 European Championships:

"I don't think about it. My friends and relatives think it's true and so does my wife. In the gym I might be elegant, but in real life I'm not."

On his plans:

"[The Doha 2018] world championships and we need medals to qualify for the [Tokyo 2020] Olympic Games."
