Turkey continues ascent in seventh subdivision of men’s qualifications

DOHA: Turkey led the team standings, and simultaneously moved into a provisional ninth place, in the seventh subdivision of men’s qualifications at Aspire Dome on Friday.

Turkey, which placed 25th at the 2014 Worlds and thereby did not advance as a team to the 2015 Worlds, led the subdivision with 240.196 points.

“It was not the best performance, but we are happy. We are writing history. We were 25th at the 2014 World Championships, and today we are in the top 10 and might finish among the top 15. It is good for us and for gymnastics in Turkey,” said Ferhat Arican of his squad’s effort.

Qualifications continue with three more subdivisions on Friday.
