Our freestyle wrestling national team successfully performed at seniors’ world championship taking place in Las Vegas, USA giving first licensees to XXXI Summer Olympic Games will be held in 2016 in Rio-de-Janeiro, Brazil and delegation returned home. At the Heydar Aliyev International airport our sportsmen were met by representatives of Azerbaijan Wrestling Federation (AWF), sportsmen’s relatives and journalists.

We would like to note that our freestyle wrestlers Haji Aliyev (61 kg) gained gold, Jamalatdin Magomedov (125 kg) silver and Khetag Gazyumov (97 kg) bronze medals. Haji Aliyev went down in history as a first Azerbaijan athlete gaining two times title of world champion.

Secretary-General of AWF Ajdar Jafarov noted that all three teams successfully performed at the mundial: “We started preparations to the competition several months ago. Our teams demonstrated high resoluteness. We got enoughOlympic licensees in all wrestling disciplines. Gaining gold medal Haji Aliyev wrote his name in the history of Azerbaijan wrestling with gold letters. Haji Aliyev went down in history as a first Azerbaijan athlete gaining two times title of world champion. Not every sportsman can gain two times in a row title of world champion. For sure all these successes are not accidental. The head of the state, the president of National Olympic Committee Mr. Ilham Aliyev permanently pays a big attention to entire sport and wrestling as well. Owing to this care sportsmen successfully perform at the international arenas. In general performance of our team is satisfactory. Our wrestlers gained 8 medals and 11 licensees to the Olympic Games”.

Secretary-General also noted that Olympic champion Togrul Asgarov competing in 65 kg faced with prejudice judgment: “Referees from 69 countries were appointed to the WC. Some of them with non-objective decisions prevented us to gain more medals. Competing in 65 kg Togrul Asgarov in 1/4 final stage gained “clear victory” over Italian rival. But referees did injustice against our Olympic champion. But what can we do? It’s a sport and such things happen. The head of our delegation, 1st vice-president of Azerbaijan Wrestling Federation Namig Aliyev immediately interfere and sent complaint letter to the United World of Wrestling. After this special committee was created and blunder mistake of the referees in that bout raised to the top. Despite it didn’t affect on the result of the bout referees’ punishment came to the result and probably attendance of those referees at the Olympic Games will be impossible”.

In regards with successful performance of our wrestlers at the WC the senior coach of freestyle wrestling national team Firdovsi Umudov congratulated Azerbaijan people: “Our achievement is a big success. In regard with this victory I congratulate all sport lovers at the head of the president  Mr.Ilham Aliyev. We gained 11 Olympic licensees at the mundial. To deliver their number to maximum we have 3 tournaments ahead. We have to well prepare. For sure there should created gaps in the weighting categories we got Olympic licensees. Everyone should work at self-improvement as Rio Olympic Games is waiting for us. We have to repeatedly raise our flag and sound our anthem”.

Our twofold world champion Haji Aliyev shared his joy as well: “It’s a big happiness to be twofold world champion. I’m very happy that we were the first who did this in the history of Azerbaijan wrestling. I will try to become three or four times world champion. I express my gratitude to the leadership of AWF for created conditions. Also I’m grateful to our coach’s staff. I’m world and European champion and will try to be Olympic champion as well”.
