Nagornyy told R-Sport that he wanted to win the gold but he is happy with Artur Dalaloyan taking it:
“My most important goal for today was gold in the all-around. It was won by Artur and not by me but we have the gold! ….
Of course, I wanted to prove that we can win. Artur has proved it, I got the third place. Two Russians on the all-around medal podium – I think this hasn’t yet happened before. And I am really proud of what we’ve done today”. …
Andrei Rodionenko said to the media that the Russian MAG team is finally restoring the winners mentality that they used to have during the Soviet times …
Nagornyy thought hard when asked to whom he dedicated his medal, looking down at the bronze for some time before deciding.
“If I had won the gold, I would have dedicated it to my whole team,” he said. “Instead, I dedicate it to my first coach, Olga Ivanovna Nechepurenko.”
The medals for Dalaloyan and Nagornyy are the first for the Russian men in the All-around since the late Yuri Ryazanov won bronze in 2009 in London (GBR).
