Russian gymnast Artur Dalaloyan, who has already won two golds at the World Championships in Doha, has become a real hero, but no one can say that he has done the impossible, according to the head coach of the Russian national team Valentina Rodionenko .

Dalaloyan on Wednesday brought the Russian national team the first gold since 1999 at the World Championships in the all-around, and on Friday he won the floor exercise (FX). He also has a silver medal in the team final. 

Artur is just a hero now. Just a hero. I won’t say that he did the impossible. He just did his program at the best possible level. The mistake in the team final spurred him very well. [...] Finally, the system that has been built for us for so long is working,, Rodionenko told RIA Novosti. We have a reserve, and probably at the Olympic Games, and maybe even at the World Championships in Stuttgart, you will see new names in the team,” the senior coach added

Dalaloyan is qualified to compete in three event finals in the second day of finals at Doha, vault , parallel bars and high bar.
