I love my coach

Amongst the all lovely presents that Stefan has received by his gymnasts and their parents, the cup 'I Love My Coach' given by David Shaumian, 8, and parents (Dessy & Erik) has become the greatest one ever. At the age of 7, David (Levski Spartak 08 G.C.) has won a silver medal from the 2012 Bulgarian Gymnastics Championships. He performed an astonishing routine on Parallel bars and became a Vice-Champion with score of 19.600, just o.1 after the gold medalist. It is a remarkable success as the competition for his age group (Boys Under 10) included around 100 of the best gymnasts from all over the country.
