Maria Stadnik in Paris-2024!

Maria Stadnik qualified for the Paris-2024 Summer Olympic Games.

As reports, the leader of the Azerbaijan national team in women's wrestling has qualified for the most prestigious competition of the quadrennial at the World Olympic Qualifying Tournament held in Istanbul.

She took advantage of her last chance to qualify for Paris-2024. The 50 kg athlete won the bronze medal against Miglena Selishka from Bulgaria with full advantage (10:0). In the match for the license, she faced the Italian Emanuela Liuzzi and wrote this duel ahead of time - 10:0.

This gave her the right to participate in the Olympics for the 5th time in her career. The double silver and double bronze medalist of the Olympic Games will make his 5th attempt to win the championship in the French capital.

Maria increased the number of licenses of Azerbaijani wrestlers to Paris-2024 to 12. Until then, 6 qualifications were obtained in freestyle wrestling and 5 in Greco-Roman wrestling.

It should be noted that although Stadnik defeated Meng Hsieh (Chinese Taipei) in the 1/8 finals and Violetta Chirik (INA) in the 1/4 finals with a full advantage (11:0), in the semi-finals, Son Hyang Kim, representative of the DPRK, won by 3:10. For this reason, she fought on the second day for qualifying.
