Men’s duet consisting of Elchin Alibayov and Emin Gulmammadli showed the third result at the competition.

Meanwhile, there has taken place a debut of Azerbaijan at the competitions in another gymnastics discipline – a trampoline on the Pyrenees.
An Azerbaijani gymnast Ruslan Aghamirov, who appeared on the international floor for the first time, did not have success in every element as internal stress and lack of experience had an impact on his performances.

This weekend, neighboring Spain will host the flying gymnasts in another event.
