Azerbaijani participant of the 1st Open Rhythmic Gymnastics Championship of Ojag Sport Club, student of the Zire Center Aida Azizova said she tried to demonstrate all her skills taught by her coach in the championship, Trend reports.

“I’m satisfied with the completed program. At first I was a little worried that something might not work out, but everything went smoothly. The coach’s words gave me confidence. She set me up for performances, saying that I need to concentrate and perform the elements the way I did in trainings.

During the performance, I tried to demonstrate all my skills," Azizova noted.
The young grace further said that she likes to perform exercises accompanied with cheerful musical compositions.

“Today I presented a program without an apparatus and an exercise with a ball. I love the exercise with a ball, because during it a beautiful music chosen by my coach is played. In general, I prefer energetic and cheerful compositions, since under such music the program is beautiful and incendiary,” she added.
