Seniors’ wrestling world championship, giving first licensees to XXXI Summer Olympic Games will be held in 2016 in Rio-de-Janeiro, Brazil is going on in Las Vegas, USA.

Our Greco-roman wrestlers gained 4 from 6 possible Olympic licensees (Rovshan Bayramov (59 kg), Elvin Mursaliyev (75 kg), Saman Tahmasibi (85 kg) and Sabah Shariati (130 kg)) and by number of licensees located on the first place with Russia. Completed championship with 1 gold (Rasul Chunayev, 71 kg) , 1 silver (Rovshan Bayramov, 59 kg) and 1 bronze Saman Tahmasibi, 85 kg) medals our Greco-roman team collecting 39 points become second. On the first place with 46 points is Russian team, Ukraine with 35 points in active closed first three.

Our Greco-roman wrestlers gaining success at mundial returned home. At the Heydar Aliyev International Airport our athletes were met by representatives of the federation, sportsmen’ relatives and representatives of mass media.

Senior coach of our team Nuraddin Rajabov commented the performance of our wrestlers as follows: “We went to the WC with big expectations. Our main task was to gain as many Olympic licensees as possible and at the same time to sound our anthem. Thanks to God we achieved our goal. Our Greco-roman wrestlers gained 4 Olympic lincensees. I’m sure that on the forthcoming competitions we will increase the number of licensees to maximum.

“I don’t want to speak a lot about organization and judging. Our jobs was taken the mat, wrestle, demonstrate skill and rise our country’s flag high. For sure in some bouts we faced with prejudice decision of the referees. But such things happen in the sport”.

Winner of gold medal in 71 kg Rasul Chunayev told about good preparation and not wasting his hardship in vain: “I’m very happy. My goal was to gain gold medal and I did it. I got success at world and European championships. Now my main goal to sound our anthem at the Olympic Games. In order to do it I will work hard and hope I’ll achieve my goal”.

I wouldn’t say that bouts were tough. I prepared well and believed myself. It was a little bit difficult to get used to local time but leadership of the federation thought about this beforehand. They took us to USA one week prior the competition. In the final I beat Armenian origin rival and double happy for that. Most likely I’ll fight in next bout in different weight category as I want to go to Olympic Games. In any case the decision will be taken by coaches”.
