“Azerbaijan in the individual program of the event will be represented by Marina Durunda and Jala Piriyeva, as well as a group, consisting of Siyana Vasileva, Alexandra Platonova, Diana Doman, Zeyneb Celep and Ayshan Bayramova,” Vasileva told Trend yesterday.

According to Vasileva, the FIG World Cup Final serves as the most important competition for the group team this season.

“I believe the Azerbaijani gymnasts will prove that they are strong despite everything. This is the main training for Durunda before the Olympic Games as she will perform in her native city, country, and this is a great responsibility,” said Vasileva.

She also mentioned that Piriyeva, a budding Azerbaijani rhythmic gymnastics star, must show her remarkable talent and prove that she has a bright future in the sport in spite of her young age.

The Azerbaijan’s national team head coach also mentioned that all the routines of the national athletes are fascinating and complex.

“Durunda always performs well with ribbon,” she said. “Piriyeva will demonstrate very complex exercises with ball and clubs. We hope she will perform the exercises successfully.”
