Pedro Ferreira: Baku organization of gymnastics tournaments is the best in the world!
Azerbaijan Gymnastics Federation organizes trampoline tournaments better than anybody else in the world, Portuguese gymnast Pedro Ferreira said, speaking with Vestnik Kavkaza after performing in the trampoline qualification on the sidelines of the European Championships in Trampoline, Tumbling and Double Mini-Trampoline.
"I think that the organization in Baku is the best in the world! The arena is so beautiful here, and everything about competitions and accommodation of gymnasts is very well organized. Azerbaijan succeeds in holding really spectacular tournaments, and this is exactly what our sport needs, especially since organizers in other countries do not pay enough attention to spectacularity," Pedro Ferreira explained.
"It's my third time in Baku and I know for sure that the AGF holds all its tournaments at the highest level. In addition, we receive strong support from the Baku audience. Usually there are not that much spectators at trampoline tournaments as in Baku, and we are very pleased that a lot of people come to see our performances and support us," the Portuguese gymnast stressed.
The 26th European Championships in Trampoline, Tumbling and Double Mini-Trampoline has opened in Baku today. More than 400 gymnasts from 25 countries are expected to join the Championships. In the first two days of the competitions, qualifications for all types of events both among junior and senior gymnasts as well as finals among teams will be held, on the last day, medalists will be known in all four types of the gymnastics events.
