The staff of Azerbaijan's national wrestling teams has been announced.

Idman.biz reports that 14 athletes will represent Azerbaijan at the European Olympic Qualifying Tournament to be held in Baku.

The Azerbaijan national freestyle wrestling team will be represented in five out of six weight categories.

Our women's national team will be represented in 5 weights. Only our heavyweight athlete will not fight. Maria Stadnik (50 kg), Elnura Mammadova (53 kg), Jala Aliyeva (57 kg), Birgul Soltanova (62 kg) and Elis Manolova (68 kg) will test their strength for a license to Paris-2024.
