Gymnastics in Azerbaijan is very beautiful and professionally organized, Canadian gymnast Natalie Garcia said in an interview with the Vestnik Kavkaza correspondent after her performance in the qualifying exercises with a ribbon at the 37th World Rhythmic Gymnastics Championships in Baku.
”I am in Baku for the first time. I didn’t know anything about Baku and Azerbaijan before major international competitions and training camps were held here. I wanted to come and see it by my own eyes because everyone said that the Azerbaijan Gymnastics Federation works exemplarily,” she noted.
”Now I understand myself that gymnastics in Azerbaijan is very beautiful and organized professionally," Natalie Garcia said.
This week, on September 16-22, the 37th World Rhythmic Gymnastics Championships is held at the National Gymnastics Arena in Baku. The tournament is the qualification competition for the 32nd Olympic Games in Tokyo. More than 300 gymnasts from 61 countries are competing for nine sets of medals. The motto of the tournament is “Fairy tales will come to life”
