Ilya Grishunin satisfied with trampoline bronze

Azerbaijan's Ilya Grishunin says that he is satisfied with his bronze medal in the men's trampoline final in front of his home crowd.

Azerbaijan's Ilya Grishunin has revealed his delight at taking the bronze medal in the men's individual trampoline final in front of his home crowd in Baku.

The 26-year-old, who was born in Russia but now represents the host nation, scored 58.765 at the National Gymnastics Arena to take his place on the podium.

"I was performing under the Azerbaijani flag. I feel like an Azerbaijani, I've got the Azerbaijani citizenship and I am feeling very well about this. In the future it will be only better," Grishunin told reporters.

"This is the biggest award of my career. I have this feeling, as if I managed to fulfil a very important task. My coach, my family and all the close people were hoping for me, and I didn't let them down."

"I feel satisfied and relieved. I knew that my mum and my wife are watching me from the stands. I am happy that I didn't let anyone down."

The event was won by Russia's Dmitry Ushakov, who scored 60.090.
