“Azerbaijan is in our heart,” world champion in the 200 m race Ramil Guliyev said to the Turkish correspondent of APA.
The world champion and his trainer Oleg Mukhin answered APA’s questions at the Istanbul Ataturk airport.
- The fastest man on Earth, Usain Bolt, put an end to his career, and at that moment Ramil Guliyev entered into the podium. What is your opinion to this assessment?
Ramil Guliyev: Usain Bolt stepped off. Why not to aim at his records, improve his results? Now with full dedication I will prepare for the European Championship. Can the winner of the world championship have smaller goal than European Championship?
- What message do you want to send to Azerbaijan now?
Ramil Guliyev: As my trainer Oleg Mukhin said, Azerbaijan is always in our heart. I started all the competitions with love in my heart to Azerbaijan and Turkey. I wholeheartedly thank everyone who worried about me.
According to his personal trainer Oleg Mukhin, Ramil always believed that he could become a world champion: "We managed to carry out the planned at every stage of the competition. Already in the semifinals, I was sure that Ramil would become the champion ... And we do not forget the Motherland for a single moment. We spend summer holidays in Azerbaijan. Azerbaijan is always in our heart. "
The world champion with his coach arrived in Ankara. It is expected that tomorrow they will be received by the President of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan. And on August 20 the first kick on the ball before the match of the Turkish football championship "Fenerbahce" - "Trabzonspor" will be done by the representative of the Istanbul club Ramil Guliyev.
