Baku Rhythmic Gymnastics Championship participant speaks about her performance at National Gymnastics Arena
I really enjoyed performing at the National Gymnastics Arena, a participant in the 27th Baku Rhythmic Gymnastics Championship, young athlete Nilufar Gasimova, representative of Ojag Sports club told Trend.
"Preparation for the competition went well, and I was satisfied with my performance at the Championship. The competitions are interesting, I like not only to perform myself but also to watch other participants perform their exercises," a seven-year-old gymnast said.
Nilufar Gasimova demonstrated a program without apparatus and exercises with a ball at the Championship, but, by her own admission, she prefers compositions with a ribbon and a hoop.
"It is interesting to perform with each of the subjects as a rhythmic gymnast. Of course, there are exercises that are more difficult, and there are those that are easier to perform. I love rhythmic gymnastics, I have been doing it since I was three years old and I really hope to achieve great heights in sports in the future," she noted.
