It is also important to perform a show so that to make it amazing to watch and participate in the competition,” said the athlete. “When travelling to Baku, we were sure that this would happen, because the Azerbaijani organizers have already shown how they are able to organize the competitions. So, many thanks for everything and for such interesting entertainment for the audience.”

Ushakov noted that he is satisfied with his performance.

“Today’s task is fulfilled – I have advanced to the semifinals in individual competitions, and we reached the finals in team competitions. We will prepare for further performances,” added the athlete.
