We would like to mention that the Azerbaijani Rhythmic Gymnastics National Team completed the European Championships winning the silver medals.
The junior team of our gymnasts phenomenally performed its exercise in the final having received quite high points from the judges - 16.55.
This result enabled the Azerbaijani gymnasts to win the silver medals.
Our individual gymnasts also competed in all four finals of the European Championships-2013. The best result was shown by Marina Durunda (the fifth places).
