The Cadet European Wrestling Championship continues in Samokov, Bulgaria.

The members of our cadet female wrestling team completed the European Championship with 2 gold medals. TurkanNasirova (46 kg) and Leyla Gurbanova (52 kg) became champions. In team ranking our wrestlers ranked fifth with 39 points.

Winning two gold medals also meant that our girls received two licenses to the 2nd Youth Olympic Games to be held in Nanjing. However, according to FILA rules, each country can be represented with 1 female wrestler only.

We would like to remind our readers that our freestyle wrestlers have also finished their matches in the European Championship. The members of the Azerbaijani freestyle wrestling team overall won 4 gold, 1 silver and 2 bronze medals. This means they managed to win 3 licenses out of the possible 5 to the Second Youth Olympics to be held in Nanjing. Our freestyle wrestlers who won licenses in 46, 63 and 100 kg weight classes will be represented in 2 weight categories in Nanjing.
