A week after the extremely successful World Cup in Rhythmic Gymnastics in Sofia, where Bulgarian gymnasts won a full set of medals in the all-around, the Bulgarian girls finished with one silver medal at Rhythmic Gymnastics World Cup in Baku.

In the individual all-around competition Elvira Krasnobaeva came second, Eva Brezalieva after serious mistakes with the clubs - tenth, and the group remained a step away from the medals. So today Krasnobaeva will play in all four individual apparatus finals, while Brezalieva will miss the clubs one. 

The Bulgarian group in Baku
Magdalina Minevska, Sofia Ivanova, Kamelia Petrova, Rachel Stoyanov and Margarita Vassileva, on the other hand, will be looking for medals, taking to the carpet with both their compositions in the group race.

Bulgarian Rhythmic Gymnastics Federation President Iliana Raeva commented on Facebook yesterday that Bulgaria would no longer participate in competitions in the Azerbaijani capital due to the unfairly low scores of our athletes.
