Azerbaijan, Baku, Feb.12 / Trend corr R. Ergun /
Azerbaijani rhythmic gymnastics team member Aliya Garayeva will aim for the gold at the European Championship 2009 in Baku.
"I won the gold at the European Championship 2007 and will try to do so again this year," Garayeva said in an interview with the Azerbaijani Gymnastics Federation Web site.
Another gymnast on the national team Anna Gurbanova refused to make forecasts about the event.
"We have double responsibility as we will perform in Baku. It is much more difficult for me to perform in front of my fans at home, but I will do my best," she said.
