“We may have at least 8 real medals. I expect a medal from each of our wrestlers, judokas”, Vice-president of Azerbaijan National Olympic Committee Chingiz Huseynzade told in an interview with journalists, APA reports.
This time, our main hope is karatekas. We expect good results from them. We have medal candidates for boxing and taekwondo. There are strong athletes on the team. What did Rio teach to us? Our 8 athletes reached the final. 7 of them lost, and one won a gold medal. Each of them might win a gold medal. When it comes to medals, it is difficult to determine which type of medals will be. These are issues that may happen a second, at a time. Generally, when it comes to medals, I hope that there will be enough,” he said.
