DOHA: Turkey Ferhat Arican spoke to the media after the seventh subdivision of men’s qualifications at Aspire Dome on Friday.

On Turkey’s team ranking of ninth place after seven of 10 subdivisions.

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.

On Turkey’s hopes for qualifying for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.

It is not a dream, it is a goal. I was at Rio in 2016, and now I want our team to be in Tokyo. I am proud of this team. If we keep on putting in good performances, we will be there.
