World Cup winner: I'm returning to Serbia with joy of win

Gabala. Elvin Yagubov – APA. It was very pleasing to me to participate in such a great competition in open air, with such beautiful nature surrounding us. Gabala will be lingering on my mind with unforgettable memories because this is the place where I won my first gold medal in a world cup competition. So I feel extremely happy. My opponents were tough enough, the competition therefore was hard. But I became the winner. I liked the nature here very much. It’s my first time coming to Azerbaijan and everything I saw was beautiful. By winning the gold medal of this competition, I qualified for the Sumemr Olympic Games which will be held in Rio de Janeiro in 2016, and I’m returning to Serbia with the joy of win,” Serbian athlete Zorana Arunovich, who became the winner of women’s competition on shooting at a 10m-range target with a pneumatic pistol in Gabala, told APA.

The female athlete, who won the gold medal by outdoing her rivals from China and Taiwan with differences of point, said she would come back to Azerbaijan again in future. 
 
“People here are very frank and hospitable. I got to know a lot of athletes here and made new friends. The competition had been organized well enough. To tell the truth, this small town – despite being far away from the capital – drew my attention with its modernity. Modern social facilities, hotels, recreational centers and sports venues are indicative of Gabala’s rapid development in future,” said Arunovich.
