International Gymnastics Federation debars Azerbaijani referee due to some errors
The Disciplinary Commission of the International Gymnastics Federation has imposed sanctions against the referee from Azerbaijan in rhythmic gymnastics Natalia Bulanova and forbidden her from taking part in international competitions for a period of six months.
Thus, Bulanov won’t be able to carry out her duties at the World Championship in Rhythmic Gymnastics, which is to start tomorrow in Stuttgart. However, the referee knew about it only the day before the official arrival day of the delegation in Stuttgart. But she arrived in the city as a tourist.
"I have been a judge of the international category for about 12 years. I have never carried out my professional duties based on emotions and nothing could cause such a biased attitude," the referee said.
