We are very glad that many fans came to support us, Melek Rzayeva, a participant of the 27th Baku Championship in Rhythmic Gymnastics, who represents the Grasiya sports club, told Trend.

“Their support helps us believe in ourselves, said the young athlete. I have been working hard for the competitions, because I know how important they are for all participants. Before that, I participated in tournaments organized in a sports club, and this is my first time performing at the National Gymnastics Arena. The impressions are wonderful, the hall is large, bright, there are many spectators in the stands,” said the eight-year-old athlete.

The gymnast noted that she always listens with great attention to the instructions of the coach and tries to follow all the instructions.

"I always strive to perform well, to demonstrate a high result in order to make the coach glad. Today I performed a program without an apparatus, and tomorrow I will perform with a ball. By the way, the ball is my favorite apparatus, so I'm looking forward to the second day of the competition," Melek Rzayeva said.
