The 6th Azerbaijan and Baku Championships in Women’s Artistic Gymnastics and 27th Azerbaijan and Baku Championships in Men’s Artistic Gymnastics among Age Categories held on March 25 & 26 at “Milli Gimnastika Arenasi” (National Gymnastics Arena) had come to an end.

In total, 69 athletes presented their performances on various apparatus to the judges and determined the strongest ones among them.
It should be mentioned that after a two-year break, spectators were able to watch the competitions in Artistic Gymnastics at “Milli Gimnastika Arenasi” due to mitigation measures under a special quarantine regime, as it was during the Azerbaijan Championship in Rhythmic Gymnastics on March 16 & 17. Gymnastics fans stated that they enjoyed watching the performances of our athletes and came to watch the competitions with great enthusiasm.
Another major competition in this gymnastics discipline awaits our senior athletes. This will be the World Cup to be held from March 31 to April 3.
