Elchin Jafarov not sure to succeed in Beijing

Baku. Elshen Mammedov – APA-Sport. “I cannot promise we will score medal in Beijing Olympics.

I have never talked about success before the competitions, and I am not going to do it. I can only say that we will try to gain victory in Olympics”, Azerbaijan Greco-Roman wrestling team coach Elchin Jafarov told APA-Sport.
The trainer stated that the team will join the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympic Games for win. Jafarov added that his sportsmen are ready for challenging encounters. He didn’t accept that Olympic and world champ Ferid Mansurov (66 kg) and two-fold European champ Rovshen Bayramov (55 kg) are the only capable wrestlers to succeed. He named Vitali Rahimov (60 kg), Ilgar Abdulov (74 kg), Shalva Gadabadze (84 kg) and Anton Botev (120 kg) as wrestlers he expects medals.
“I cannot understand why only Mansurov and Bayramov? All sportsmen have attended the training courses together. They all had the same accommodation”, he said.
Azeri coach stated that they are going to justify hopes in Beijing.
