"The European gymnastics federations trusted me and elected me as the UEG president, and in the next four years I will try to fulfill my duties conscientiously. As you know, every two years I will have to make a report and I will do everything necessary to present in two years' time a report on the work done. I hope that after four years, I will get the opportunity to be re-elected as the president of UEG," Gaibov said at a press conference on Dec. 6.
