"The athletes involved by Azerbaijan are training abroad because there are no conditions in our country," Minister of Youth and Sports Farid Gayibov said in an interview with APA.
We held talks with the relevant federation, the work has already been started, and preliminary steps are taken. I also attended the Winter Olympics for the first time this year. Of course, as both a minister and a citizen, I would like to develop winter sports in Azerbaijan. We are currently thinking about it. "Negotiations are underway, and an indoor ice rink may be opened in Baku in the first months of the new year," the minister added.
