What does Angelina Melnikova think about the Olympic Games in Rio?
Angelina Melnikova, a Russian gymnast, is sure that the Russian team has all chances to get a team medal in Rio.
Angelina Melnikova is going to be only 16 years old next month but she is already the reigning Russian national all-around champion. She got the highest all-around total among gymnasts who competed on all four apparatuses at the European Championships in Bern earlier this month.
At Melnikova’s first senior year she was still too young to compete at last fall’s World Championships in Glasgow, where Russia finished fourth. She thinks Russia has the potential for a podium finish in Rio, however.
“I think our team will try to perform with dignity and will fight for an Olympic medal,”- she said. - “We will need confidence and stability."
