Very good conditions have been created in Baku for the FIG World Cup Final in Rhythmic Gymnastics, Janika Molder, head of Estonian delegation, told Trend July 15.

“We arrived in Baku a little earlier than other teams, because we like the city very much,” said Molder. “Last year we came here twice.”

“Baku is the place where it is very nice and easy to prepare for competitions,” she said, adding the National Gymnastics Arena in Baku has excellent conditions – rooms, food, doctors, and masseurs.

She said the Estonian gymnast Carmel Kallemaa wants to perform without any mistake at the World Cup.

“I think we are prepared well enough and we will try to demonstrate it,” said Molder. “This is the final stage of the World Cup, so it is important for us to perform well here.”

FIG World Cup Final in Rhythmic Gymnastics will take place in Azerbaijan’s capital on July 22-24, giving a unique opportunity to see the performances of eminent gymnasts from 20 countries two weeks prior to the Rio Olympics.

Thirty-one gymnasts and 12 teams will compete for medals in the all-around on the first two days of competitions. Apparatus finals will be held on the event’s last day.

A magnificent Opening Ceremony, directed by the head coach of the Azerbaijani national team Mariana Vasileva, will be held on July 22, followed by the traditional Gala on July 24, as part of the FIG World Cup Final in Rhythmic Gymnastics in Baku.
