Senior Wrestling European Championship will be held in Vantaa, Finland, on 1-6 April, 2014.

The national freestyle and Greco-Roman wrestling teams, who are getting ready for the European Championship, held an open training session for mass media at the Olympic Wrestling Center today.

The Secretary General of Azerbaijan Wrestling Federation Ajdar Jafarov said that our wrestlers are training very hard for the European Champion. He also told that the team is leaving for Finland on 30 March.

“The International Wrestling Federation has recently made changes into weight classes. The coaches took corresponding measures and eliminated all possible problems with weight categories. We are leaving with a full team to the European Championship in Finland. Each member of our team is capable of becoming a medalist at the tournament. I am hoping that our team will perform to its best and will gladden the Azerbaijani fans.”

This is going to be the first tournament for Toghrul Asgarov after the London Summer Olympic Games. He said that he has seriously trained for the championship. “I know that my rivals will be very strong but I will do my best to justify everybody’s hopes.”
