The members of our female wrestling team, who already concluded their matches at the Cadet European Wrestling Championship in Samokov, Bulgaria, have returned home.

Our wrestlers were met by fans, mass media representatives and officials from Azerbaijan Wrestling Federation at HeydarAliyev international airport.

Our national female wrestling team completed the European Championship with 2 gold medals and the champions were Turkan Nasirova (46 kg) and Leyla Gurbanova (52 kg). This also means that our girls won 2 licenses to the Second Youth Olympic Games to be held in Nanjing. However, according to FILA rules in female wrestling each country can be represented by 1 wrestler only.

The gold medalist and the winner of an Olympics license Turkan Nasirova shared her joy of victory with our readers:

“I would like to thank the management of the federation and our coaches for creating all the conditions for us and for supporting us in every way possible. I am very happy to have become the European Champion. I wish to win another gold medal at the Nanjing Olympics and make my country and federation proud.”
