Artem Dolgopyat also won the bronze medal for vault, and Israeli Alexander Myakinin won bronze on the high bar.

Israeli gymnast Artem Dolgopyat won the gold medal for the floor exercise at the European Championships on Sunday, securing the gold medal with a score of 15.000. Dolgopyat also won the bronze medal for vault with a score of 14.766.

Israeli gymnast Alexander Myakinin won bronze on the high bar event with a score of 14.200.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu congratulated Dolgopyat on Twitter saying that "all citizens of Israel are proud of you."

Dolgopyat was a favorite going into the competition, in part because of the absence of Russian competitor Artur Dalaloyan, who is considered his primary competition, according to Walla News.
