The work of organizers is just great. We travel a lot to different countries, so we see the organisation of different competitions. And Baku differs from others by the fact that they do everything very quietly and professionally here, without unnecessary movements and minor problems. That is, it's a very high-quality organization," she explained.
In addition, Yana Pavlova thanked the Baku fans for their support . "A lot of Azerbaijani spectators support our athletes. Yeah, basically, the entire crowd supports us when we enter the arena, and it helps us to do a good job," the Russian gymnast said.
