Altay Hasanov: Oleg Stepko met our high expectations
Azerbaijani athlete Oleg Stepko, who won a bronze medal in exercises on rings at the FIG World Challenge Cup in Artistic Gymnastics today, lived up to the high expectations of him, vice-president of the Azerbaijani Gymnastics Federation Altay Hasanov stated.
"We expected that Oleg will perform well. It was a bit hard on the first day, you know that. Excitement. As I said earlier, native walls do not always help. Native walls also strain and obligate. And it happened. On the first day, both Oleg and Petro Pahnyuk had some difficult moments. Well, now, as you can see, Oleg has adapted. He started with a bronze medal," Vestnik Kavkaza quotes Hasanov as saying.
