Baku, Azerbaijan, June 15
By Emin Aliyev - Trend:
Azerbaijani gymnast Jala Piriyeva, who won silver in the exercises with the hoop among the juniors at the Rhythmic Gymnastics European Championships in Baku, said she will continue to train hard.
She did not win any medals in other disciplines.
"The busy schedule of performing compositions affected the general result," Piriyeva said in a brief interview with Trend.
"I was last who performed with the clubs and several minutes later I was already performing with a ribbon," she said, adding that it happened to her for the fist time.
Piriyeva said there were no specific reasons for why she failed to capture more medals.
"There are no other reasons of my failure to gain more medals," she said. "It just didn't happen, but that's fine, I will continue to train hard for better results."
