Israeli gymnast Alex Shatilov claimed his second career medal at the European Artistic Gymnastics Championships on Saturday, taking the silver in the floor exercise final in Berlin.

The 24-year-old won Israel's first ever medal at the Europeans two years ago, taking the bronze in the floor final, and also claimed the country's first medal at the World Championships, coming third in 2009.

A serious knee injury saw Shatilov miss last year's Europeans, but he proved Saturday that he is back to top form and will be one of Israel's best medal hopes in next year's Olympic Games in London.
