”I am in Baku for the third time, the organization of tournaments is always great here. AGF provides everything that an athlete needs,” she said.
“For example, there are a lot of gymnastic carpets here, we can train without any problem. In addition, we have two hours for training per day - it is a lot. If we want to practice, even more, we are provided with an opportunity to train, and that is not common in other countries,” Juliana Telegina said.
"A special pleasure is the training camp in Baku. We first came here to the training camp in April, and were very pleased with how the sports life is organized here," the Israeli gymnast added.
