Azerbaijani gymnasts once again impressed the spectators at the Loule Cup. 

The World Cup in tumbling and trampoline gymnastics ended in the Portuguese city of Loulé on October 7, the Azerbaijan Gymnastics Federation reported.

At the end of the tournament, special cups were presented to the gymnasts who distinguished themselves on the basis of the final points of all the World Cups organized this year.

According to the results, the European champion in tumbling in 2018, Azerbaijani gymnast Mikhail Malkin was awarded the cup.
