"Each of my fights was very difficult."
Elchin Eminov, the winner of the International Wushu-sanda Competition held in Kyrgyzstan, told Idman.biz.
The 5-time European Champion won 4 fights in Jalal-Abad and climbed to the top of the podium. He emphasized that the matches were tense: "I faced a local athlete in the final match. The opponent was a prize winner of the Asian games. It was a very intense match. I was injured in the semi-final. This showed itself in the final match. Although the opponent won the first round, I tied the score after that. In the extra round, years of experience spoke for itself and I managed to win a gold medal."
Eminov said that participation in the tournament is intended for preparation for the World Championship to be held in Mexico on November 16-20.
It should be noted that Azerbaijani wushu players won 4 gold medals in the International Tournament held in Kyrgyzstan.
