- 23 November 2020
Several members of the Azerbaijani national freestyle wrestling team have been infected with the coronavirus, said the Azerbaijan Wrestling Federation to Apasport.az.
It was noted that the organization has been sensitive to the issue since the first days of the pandemic in Azerbaijan: “That is why the trainings of national teams have been suspended for several months. The training process began only in June, when the national teams were allowed to train. However, the wrestlers included in the main team were considered to take part in the trainings. This is just the preparation for the individual World Cup to be held in Serbia in December. All necessary measures have been taken to prevent the spread of coronavirus among wrestlers and coaches. The Olympic Wrestling Center is equipped with disinfectants at the entrances, which wrestlers use when entering the arena. At the same time, before each training, the temperature of the whole staff is checked one by one, and those with high temperatures do not participate in the training. In addition to regular tests of wrestlers and coaches, the training base, dormitory and office of the federation are disinfected. On Friday, the whole staff was tested again. As a result, several freestyle wrestlers were quarantined because their tests were positive.
