The traditional FIG Berlin Masters Rhythmic Gymnastics World Challenge Cup in Germany’s capital came to an end on July 9.

The event turned out to be remarkable for the national representatives of the most gracious gymnastics discipline.

Ayshan Bayramova, Zeynep Celep, Diana Doman, Aleksandra Platonova and Siyana Vasileva, represented Azerbaijan in the composition of the team in group exercises and managed to reach the finals in both routines of the program.

Their performance with 3 balls and 2 ropes brought them the bronze medal in the final stage. The 1st and 2nd places were shared by Russian and Ukrainian gymnasts, accordingly.

The second final performance was demonstrated by the rhythmic gymnasts with clubs. Having received 16.100 points from the judges, they contented themselves with the 5th place. The girls stopped a step away from the medal in the all-around by becoming the 4th.

Zohra and Ayshan, the leaders of the group team, performed in the individual program. Ayshan, trying out her skills in the individual program after a long break, became the 8th in the final with a ribbon, and the 18th in the all-around. Her teammate Zohra took 14th in the all-around.
