Joao Paulo: AGF is the world's most active gymnastic federation
The Azerbaijan Gymnastics Federation is the most active gymnastic federation in the world, the head of the Portuguese Gymnastics Federation, Joao Paulo, said today on the margins of the European Championships in Trampoline, Double Mini-Trampoline and Tumbling in Baku in a conversation with a correspondent of Vestnik Kavkaza.
"The feelings at the European Championships in Baku, as always here, are very good. This is not surprising - the AGF is probably the most active gymnastic federation in the world, no wonder it is the first in the FIG ratings, and we follow. It is a very well-organized federation that seeks to develop new concepts in gymnastics, and there are very hospitable people who meet us in the best possible way, "he stressed.
Joao Paulo noted that only good words can be said about the activities of the AGF. "And our athletes are also very happy with the way they welcomed here. And we have good results - so far 5 medals, I hope there will be more. And the medal in the trampoline team competition is historical for us and very important, as it proves that we are moving forward, and this is a very pleasant feeling, "the head of the Portuguese Gymnastics Federation said.
He also highly appreciated the work of Farid Gaibov as the president of the European Union of Gymnastics. "I have known Farid for several years, I really like him, I can say that we are friends. He is a very purposeful person, always tries to help gymnastics, not only in his country, but in all countries. I hope that his four years in the Federation will go well. I know that he has very good ideas, some of which he is implementing right now. The future of European gymnastics is very bright thanks to Farid, " Joao Paulo concluded.
