The Azerbaijan artistic gymnast team is one of the strongest
teams in the world right now, silver medalist of the 1996 Olympics,
the official Ambassador of the 37th Rhythmic Gymnastics World
Championships in Baku, Yana Batyrshina told reporters, Trend reports.
'The team demonstrated this by winning 4 bronze medals at
European Championships in Tel Aviv,' she said.
Batyrshina attended the final training of Azerbaijan's gymnasts
at Baku National Gymnastics Arena, who will represent the country
in rhythmic gymnastics competitions at the upcoming V Islamic
Solidarity Games in the Turkish city of Konya.
'The results of Azerbaijani national team at European
Championship are excellent. I want to specially point out the group
exercise team, that won bronze medals in all of the programs. I
always say, that Azerbaijan has a very strong team, which is
developing in the right direction,' Batyrshina said
She noted, that at the 2017 Islamic Solidarity Games, the
Azerbaijani rhythmic gymnastics team showed good results and won
'I wish them to repeat this success in Turkiye and win as many
medals as possible. Moreover, the national team has every chance
for this. Today, during training, I saw for the first time the
performances of young gymnasts Ilona Zeynalova and Alina Gezalova.
I was struck by the fact that Zeynalova only came to rhythmic
gymnastics at the age of 11, and now she is 15 years old. She has
done a lot of work in four years. To do this, you need to be
insanely talented, which she demonstrated today at the final
training. I think Ilona Zeynalova has a great future, just like
Alina Gezalova,' she added.
Batyrshina added that she would also be very happy to hold a
master class for Azerbaijani gymnasts once again.
