Eleftherios Petrounias emerged supreme on Saturday claiming the gold medal in the gymnastics world championships in Glasgow Scotland.
Petrounias celebrated his win by dedicating his gold medal to his father, who passed away a few weeks ago. The Greek athlete overcame his rivals with a 15,800 score. His success in Glasgow means that he secured a place in the upcoming Rio de Janeiro 2016 Olympic Games.
The 24 year old had won the gold medal at the European Championships in Montpellier back in April among other successes this past year. The Greek strong man has won 11 out of the 12 competitions he has participated in 2015.
