Israeli gymnast Artem Dolgopyat won On Sunday a silver medal in gymnastics in the European Men's Artistic Gymnastics Championships taking place in Glasgow.

Dolgopyat reached the finals of the European championship after finishing first in the qualifying rounds, with a score of 14.666. In the 2017 European championship Dolgopyat finished fourth, thereby missing out on the medal due to a penalty that cost him half a point. The bronze medal went to his teammate, Alex Shatilov.

This is the first time that three Israelis make it to the finals of the European championship. Other than Dolgopyat, Shatilov reached the finals as well, as did Andrey Medvedev in vault.
