The names of the wrestlers to participate at the Senior World Wrestling Championship in the Uzbekistan capital Tashkent have been announced. After revealing the teams the 1st Vice President of Azerbaijan Wrestling Federation, FILA Bureau Member Namik Aliyev shared his views on the championship with the journalists:

“Around 80% of our sportsmen included in the team to participate at the Senior World Wrestling Championship in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, from 8 to 14 September this year are going to take part in this tournament for the first time.”

He says there is a new generation of wrestlers in Azerbaijan already: “Despite the fact that it is their first ever World Championship, most of them have become the junior World and European champions. Despite their young age, these are quite experience wrestlers. I believe they will prove themselves.”

Mr. Aliyev also spoke of our Olympic champions: “Toghrul Asgarov has had a knee surgery and is under rehabilitation at the moment. I think he will shortly return to the team and will participate in certain tournaments. Sharif Sharifov has changed his weight class. He will represent Azerbaijan at the European and Olympic games in 97 kg weight class.”

He says all of our wrestling teams, be it Greco-Roman, freestyle or female, have great potential and they will perform well at the world championship.

The 1st VP of the AWF says the federation has been following a special program on heavy weights for 6-7 years: “We have been holding great selections throughout the country and it is already yielding its results. It is no coincidence that we scored a gold medal in heavy weight at the Youth Olympics. Our sportsmen became world champions in the heaviest weight for the first time ever at the latest Junior World Championship. These are the results of our targeted policy.”

He says the upcoming world championship is also a certain phase: “The most important events for us are the European Games to be held next year, the licensing World Championship in Las Vegas which will be held shortly afterwards and the Senior Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. This world championship will help us determine our wrestlers’ shape and the teams for the upcoming significant tournaments.”

He also explained why Rovshan Bayramov was not included in the team to participate at the World Championship: “Rovshan Bayramov performed weakly at the Golden Grand Prix tournament dedicated to the national leader Heydar Aliyev, so the coaches decided to substitute him. However, he has great potential and we will soon see him again in great tournaments. I hope Rovshan Bayramov will be back in the swing for the 2016 Olympics and will represent our country.”
