The Acrobatic Gymnastics European Championships, which took place after a two-year break, was also successful for our gymnasts. Our representatives again made us happy with the medals won in the Continental Championships.

Our acrobats started to win medals from the very first day of the competition. The Azerbaijani Women's Group won the Bronze medal, having received 27,400 scores from the judges for their dynamic exercises.
By adding both “Silver” and “Bronze” to our team's medal box, Aghasif and Raziya doubled our medal joy. Having received 86,470 scores for their combined exercises, our gymnasts took the 2nd place on the podium. On the last day of the event, they became Bronze medalist for their dynamic routine and raised our tricolor flag for the third time at the Vitrifrigo Arena in Pesaro.
The Azerbaijani Men's Pair - Murad Rafiyev & Daniel Abbasov showed the best result in the combined exercises and ranked 5th.
