Ukrainian gymnast Yevheniia Nedzvedska is not fully pleased with her performance at the 11th European Aerobic Gymnastics Championships in Baku, Trend reports on May 24.
"I am not fully pleased with my performance,” she said. “There were some mistakes in some elements. I am participating in the individual program and as part of the trio during the championship. It is easier to perform in the individual program because one gymnast is responsible for everything, but as part of a trio or a group, if anyone makes a mistake, the whole team loses."
