"I am very happy that I won the gold medal in Australia."
Murad Fatiyev (90 kg), the winner of the open Oceania Judo Tournament held in Perth, Australia, told Idman.biz.
The member of the team said that he felt comfortable during the fights and this factor helped him to win the gold medal: "My opponents were strong. My toughest match was against Sami Chouchi in the quarter finals. But I managed to defeat him with a vazari score. The time difference also created certain difficulties. Despite these, I am happy to have won the gold medal. The "Grand Slam" tournament in Japan is waiting for me."
It should be noted that along with Murad Fatiyev, Aydan Valiyeva (52 kg) won a bronze medal in the open Oceania Tournament.
