Anastasia Salos: Azerbaijani gymnasts lucky to have AGF

Azerbaijani gymnasts are lucky to have the Azerbaijan Gymnastics Federation, Belarusian gymnast Anastasia Salos said, speaking with the correspondent of Vestnik Kavkaza after the qualification round with hoop and ball routines.

In addition, Anastasia Salos noted the enchanting beauty of Baku city. "I did not have time to get to explore the city well, but I liked what I saw in Baku. We walked by the sea last night, and the city looked delightful at night-time illumination, there were lights everywhere, everything was shining so beautifully," the Belarusian gymnast said.
