Four gold medals for Georgiou
The national anthems of Iceland and Cyprus were played repeatedly in the gymnastic arena today. The Icelandic girls collected a clean sweep of four gold medals and Marios Georgiou (CYP) picked up four gold medals in the men‘s competition. Georgiou won his medals at the vault (14,550), the pommel horse (14,500), parallel bars (14,200) and horizontal bar (14,250).
His fellow countryman Irodotos Georgallas got the best ratings at the still rings (14,100) and Sascha Palgen (LUX) at the floor (14,350) where Georgiou won the bronze medal.
The most frustrated man in the hall must have been Valgarð Reinhardsson (ISL) who three times came second, at the floor, the vault and the parallel rings. Palgen picked up three more medals as well as he came second at the still rings, the pommel horse and joint second with Valgarð at the parallel rings.
