The Azerbaijani cadet wrestlers successfully finished yet another tournament. At the European Championship in Bar, Montenegro, our national teams won 6 gold, 2 silver and 7 bronze medals, 15 overall. This achievement is a proof that the process of generation alternation is being successfully carried out.

In order to ground our point, let us consider the results for the last 4 years: our teams won 14 medals (6 gold, 3 silver and 5 bronze) at the European Championship held in Bosnia and Herzegovina in 2010. A year later they bettered their results in Warsaw, Poland. This is also seen in the number of medals they brought home: 7 gold, 4 silver and 7 bronze medals (overall 18). Our freestyle wrestling team ranked first, Greco-Roman team ranked second according to team results, which started a completely new page in our wrestling history.

Most members of that golden team passed to the junior team in 2012 and new cadet wrestlers were invited to join the national team. This influenced the results at the European Championship in Katowice, Poland, the same year. Our team won fewer gold medals. Nonetheless, the number of overall medals received remained the same: 18 medals (3 gold, 9 silver and 6 bronze).

This year’s achievements once again proved that all the taken measure have proven to be effective – the anthem of Azerbaijan was played 6 times in the Balkan Peninsula, and our flag was raised 9 more times for other medals (2 silver, 7 bronze). Our freestyle wrestling team seized back the champion’s title. Our Greco-Roman team ranked second according to team results for the second time in the last 4 years.
