We extend our sincere congratulations to you on your election as president of the European Union of Gymnastics, and wish you success in this post.

For the first time a representative of Azerbaijan will head a European sports federation. It is manifestation of the European gymnastic family`s highly appreciating rapid development of gymnastics in Azerbaijan in recent years. Azerbaijan`s excellently hosting the world and European gymnastics championships, establishment of the state-of-the-art National Gymnastics Arena and gymnastic clubs in the regions was rightly praised by the European Union of Gymnastics.

Your activity as vice-president of the European Union of Gymnastics played a key role in your election to this post.

Once again we extend our congratulations and wish you success.
