There will be a really good presidential board at the European Union of Gymnastics (UEG) under the leadership of the newly-elected president, Farid Gayibov, said Kirsi Erofejeff-Engman, ex-director of European Union of Gymnastics and the acting director of the AFS (American Field Service) Intercultural Programs in Finland.

The UEG will have a good cooperation with all member federations, and also see good events, championships, under the leadership of Farid Gayibov, Kirsi Erofejeff-Engman told Trend.

“I think that there will be really good presidential board and executive committee, and also very motivated technical committees,” she said.

Azerbaijan Gymnastics Federation Secretary General Farid Gayibov was elected as the President of the European Union of Gymnastics (UEG).

The 50 member Federations of the UEG elected the new UEG authorities at the 27th Congress in Split, Croatia on December 2. Gayibov gained 28 votes, leaving behind Edvard Kolar, President of the Management Board of the Slovenian Sports Lottery, who received 20 votes.

Gayibov will replace Georges Guelzec (FRA), who led the UEG since 2009.
