Russian acrobatics gymnasts reign supreme at Baku 2015 European Games

Marina Chernova and Georgy Pataraya have dominated the Acrobatic Gymnastics competition at Baku's National Gymnastics Arena. After winning the mixed pairs all-around final on Friday, the Russian duo added two more gold medals to their list on Sunday.

Testing routines in the balance and dynamic final won the two golds, but the champions remained matter-of-fact.

"It means that we didn't waste our time. All the training was worth it," said Chernova of the victory. "We feel very tired, but this is a very good feeling."

Belgian gymnasts Yana Vastavel and Solano Cassamajor won two silver medals as the Acrobatic Gymnastics competition concluded on Sunday. "It's amazing. It's a fantastic feeling," said Cassamajor.

"It will take a lot of training, but maybe we are able to beat them next year," he added about their chances of beating the Russians.

Britain's Hannah Baughn and Ryan Bartlett walked away with two bronze medals.
