By Jani Babayeva – Trend:
It is very nice to celebrate my birthday in Baku, in such a beautiful gymnastics hall and with my trainees who are participating in the AGF 2nd Junior Trophy in Rhythmic Gymnastics, coach of Kyrgyzstan national team Saule Tlebaldinova told Trend.
The hosts of the AGF Junior Trophy tournament announced that Saule Tlebaldinova was celebrating her birthday on April 20 and presented her gifts and flowers.
"It was very pleasant surprise when that the entire hall congratulated me. It is the first time when I celebrate my birthday in such a way. I also celebrated my birthday in Baku during the AGF Junior Trophy tournament last year, but not on the day of our gymnasts’ performance. It just happened by chance that my trainees are performing today, so it became a double celebration for me!" said Saule Tlebaldinova.
