Lithuania hopes to reach the final round of the AGF Junior Trophy, the head coach of the country's junior team in rhythmic gymnastics Erica Chipkiene told Trend.

She said, gymnasts could perform better, but nerves and training prevented a good performance.

"I think we can reach the finals in one or more exercises. But I think that the girls could perform better. Nerves and lack of training prevented them from success," the Lithuanian coach said.

Chipkiene also noted the high organization level of the competition.

"Everything is at a very high level. Beautiful hall, the conditions are just wonderful. In general, competitions are organized at a very high level," said Chipkiene.

Note that after the performances of the first group of gymnasts, the Lithuanian athletes are in second place in the team standings, and they have a chance to reach the finals in specific exercises.

The competitions of the international tournament AGF Junior Trophy started in the national gymnastics arena in Baku on April 23.

Today qualification competitions are held individually. At the end of the day, the winners will be determined in the team standings, as well as finalists in specific exercises with gymnastic apparatus.

In total, representatives of 18 countries take part in the tournament.
